The Grey Cliffs of Paphos - Part 2

Published 1st of November, 2021

In the second part of our series on the cliffs that run through Paphos City, we examine the area to the west of Iasis Hospital. Come and see what we found...

Towards The Hospital


Iasis Hospital is just down there. The road in front of us runs up to the Police Station. There are some cliffs above the hospital but I gave them a brief perusal and there was nothing interesting, so we are heading west.

Follow The Path


There is a decent footpath here, at least for the first part of our adventure. Perhaps they plan to extend it to include the rest of the area? Assuming it will all eventually get developed, it will be nice to have a scenic walkway running through it.

Pretty Pod


I saw this on the floor. It puzzled me because it was the only one of its kind and none of the trees in the area seemed to have anything similar.

Dwellings Above


At the top of the cliffs you can see where the gardens of various houses end.

This Way


We shall go up the slope into the wooded area, to see what it conceals.

The Grey Cliffs of Paphos - Part 1

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.

St George's Church and Shrine Caves

Near the shops on the Paphos / Geroskipou border, is a little track that runs below a cliff through some farmland. A sign indicates that there is a church down there, so one day I thought I would investigate. Sure enough, there was a little church, but there was so much more besides...

Paphos Caving

A few months ago we read a report in the papers about an interesting cave that lurked within Paphos itself, behind an old church. After a bit of investigation I found it, and did a bit of spelunking.
