The Tombs of the Kings are one of the most important archaeological sites in Cyprus and have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1980. These tombs form part of the vast Archaeological Park in Kato Paphos and are carved out of solid rock which date back to the Hellenistic and Roman periods. The locality is named after the splendid tombs of the aristocracy that have been discovered in this location. This necropolis is two kilometers north of the Paphos harbour and the underground tombs date back to the 4th century BC. Archaeological excavations are still carried out on this important heritage site.
