Down at the end of the harbor was the rather large entrance to the Paphos archaeological dig site. This site has been a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site since 1980. The area has been inhabited since neolithic times but most of the ruins are from the Roman era circa 2 to 4 AD. We were able to visit the House of Aion and the House of Theseus. The House of Dionysos was closed for preservation work. What we did get to see was spectacular though. Many of the larger mosaics were protected under small buildings but so many more of the pathways were lined with simple mosaic designs that it was really impressive. Many of the exposed areas could be physically touched. These houses were huge – even by today’s standards – both having upwards of forty separate rooms. There were round rooms, pillars, even what looked like plumbing. Sydney was REALLY digging it all and seemed fascinated by all of the ‘old stuff’. There is more to see – like an ancient amphitheater and the “Tombs of the Kings” so we’re definitely going to make another trip down here tomorrow to see the rest of it. Lots of pix below.
