The Grey Cliffs of Paphos - Part 1

Published 28th of October, 2021

How Old?


There were clearly several buildings here at some point, but I have no idea how old they are. Were they abandoned after the invasion of the Seventies, or before that?

On The Inside


I decided to explore the buildings from right to left, going in an anticlockwise direction. The first building had a series of troughs in it. I think they were used for feeding animals.

Further Inside


Walking past the troughs, I could see another room that had been carved out of the cliff base.

Looking Out


You can see from this angle that there are tie rings on each of the troughs, which add weight to my theory that they were used for feeding animals. What I find most interesting though, is how little man-made wall there is here. The majority of this building is cliff.

More Frontages


Looking at the other buildings, it is clear that most of them are basically just bricked-up caves. Let's take a look in here.
