Paphos Medieval Tower

Published 23rd of December, 2021

The other day I was out Christmas Shopping. I had parked in a side road near the Cyta Building due to the volume of shoppers around. I hadn't been down this road before, and was surprised by what I found down there. What do you think?



This is not the sort of thing you find every day when you go for a wander.

Unfinished Business


I wanted to look at the cliffs when I parked the car. I had a sneaking suspicion that when I did the small series on the cliffs of Paphos, I had missed an area. That adventure will have to wait for another, less muddy day. But I had a look at them from above, and it was then that I saw the tower.

Well Supported


I can't find out any information on the tower itself, other than that it is labelled "Paphos Medieval Tower" on Google Maps. Most searches pull up information on the castle in the harbour, which is hardly surprising.

Stairway To Heaven


So does anybody know the story of this place? It is clearly being renovated, and is completely fenced off. However, there is no information sign. If you know anything, please leave a comment.

Finding It


If you are in the area, pop down and have a look at it. You can find it here.

A ridge of cliffs bisects the city of Paphos. Below it, Universal and Kato Paphos stretch down to the sea. Above it, the Old Town and business areas form the bulk of the rest of the city. But what of the cliffs themselves? For years I have been meaning to explore them properly, and recently I finally got around to it. I've split the article into three parts, and we shall begin above the church we featured in our last blog.
