Paphos was the capital of Cyprus for 600 years in Antiquity and its rich history has been recognised in the fact that the whole city was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.

Paphos is a coastal city in the South West of Cyprus and is the capital of the Paphos District. In myth it was the birthplace of the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite. As part of the founding myth, the town’s name crops up again, being the name of Pygmalion’s son. (Pygmalion being the sculptor who, having carved a woman of ivory, falls in love with her- Aphrodite brings the statue to life and the child of this union was named Paphos.)
