Old Paphos Revisited

Published 28th of June, 2017

Six months ago we posted a blog optimistically titled "A Last Look at Old Old Paphos". It proved very popular. In fact, with nearly 3000 views, it is our most popular blog to date. Six months down the line, the renovations are still not yet complete. So we thought we would take another look, to see how the work was progressing.

Off-road Challenge!

This time we started our walk near Marks and Spencers. However, it was a bank holiday morning, so we were unable to buy any Percy Pigs. I should stress that the road in the photo above is a side road, not the main drag!

Work Continues

It's been a few months since we last reported on the progress of the Old Paphos Regeneration Scheme.I had to visit the main Cyta Shop recently, and as I had time to kill I decided to take my camera for a stroll, to see how things were progressing.
