Palea Paphos History

The city of Paphos was eventually moved closer to the sea but Old Paphos was still visited by those devoted to Aphrodite.  At the end of the fourth century A.D., all pagan religions were outlawed by the Roman Emperor, Theodosius I.  It is at this time that the Sanctuary of Aphrodite and other parts of the town began to fall into ruins.  A village, Kouklia, now sits on the site of Palea Paphos.   read more
