Palia Ilektriki Minus Fountain

Unfortunately, the fountain has now totally vanished. Who knows, perhaps it was attracting too many insects? It's a shame though, because it looked lovely in full flow. The strange bit of machinery you can see in the foreground relic from the building's old function as a power station.

Incidentally, we haven't eaten here ourselves but by all accounts the food here is very good. You can find it in our directory.

Back To Square Square

We didn't let the lack of fountain dishearten us. Instead we set off back towards what Google tends to translate as "Square Square". I am sure that that is not its real name, but this will help explain why I call it Pumpkin House Square instead.

Pumpkin House

And there is Pumpkin House itself! In front of it, you can see a new statue. Actually, it is not that new. It has been there for nearly a year now. It was only officially unveiled a few weeks ago though...

Take a Look Inside!

No trip to Old Pafos is complete without a trip to Pumpkin House. You can even view some of their creations on their swanky new website: www.pumpkinhouse.eu. We shall only pop in for a quick hello today though.

Every time we visit Pumpkin House the shop looks slightly different. It is evolving all the time, and bursting with life.
