Pafos Medieval Castle

Enjoy an afternoon walk to the Pafos Harbour, just a 10-minute walk from Anemi Suites and enjoy the majestic colorful sunset next to the Medieval Castle.

The Castle was originally a Byzantine fort built to protect the harbour, and was rebuilt by the Lusignans in the 13th century, but then dismantled by the Venetians. The Ottomans rebuilt it in the 16th century when they conquered the island. What survives today is the 1592 Ottoman restoration of the western Frankish tower with its Venetian additions.
Under the British rule, the castle was used as a salt store until 1935, when it was declared an Ancient Monument.

Archaeological Park

Visit the Archaeological Park of Pafos and experience the unique beauty of some of the most superbly preserved mosaics in the world dating from the 3rd and 5th century A.D. The Archaeological Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site, is near the Harbour only a 10-minute walk from Anemi Hotel & Suites.
