Tombs of the Kings

Situated close to the sea in the north western necropolis of Pafos, these ‘tombs’ were the last resting place of members of Pafian aristocracy who had sufficient funds to construct these impressive burial tombs during the 4th century BC. Painstakingly carved out of solid rock and supported by an array of Doric pillars these deep and somewhat eerie tombs were given the ‘Royal’ title purely because the stonemasons and those who commissioned them wished to have a ‘King’ like construction for their remains.
