The site itself is extensive, but has easy access to all areas, could do with more information signsas you walk round. The museum in the old Manor House is very interesting, but not the easiest to get into if, like me, you have a bit of trouble walking - ramp up to the exhibit is cobbled - but on the... More

With so many magnificent site to visit, it is easy to become blase about yet another set of ruins but this one has special significance. There are more spectacular sites such as Kourion and Paphos but the Sanctuary is well worth the the hour or so that it takes to wander around the site and understand its significance. The museum...

Found this site quite by chance whilst on our way to Kourion. What a wonderful surprise! The ruins were great -ok, not as much so as the famous park in Paphos but, great to just wander and also take in the views. A smashing museum and very reasonable entrance fee. All was great but highlights for us? Watching the Cypriot... More

It was about 2010 but I didn't use trip advisor then, a nice little museum here with some interesting artefacts and information about them and the area. Access for disabled was poor then, obviously unsure if it's changed?

This is an interesting site to visit, though not as impressive as the Archaeological Park in Paphos. The entry is less than 5 euros. The museum has some interesting artefacts.

This sanctuary has a deeply rich and ancient history, and is absolutely fascinating. The staff at the ticket desk and in the museum were very helpful and friendly, and information was readily available on signs and on a video screen. It is incredibly hot though at this time of year, so visit at the beginning or end of the day,... More
