The inclusion of Kato Pafos archaeological area in the
World Heritage List in 1980 sparked off the idea of the
creation of a General Plan, whose main aim is to preserve
and maintain archaeological remains and to promote and
provide integral information to visitors. Archaeological
site of Kato Pafos includes areas and monuments from
prehistoric times up to and including the middle Ages,
with most remains dating to Roman period. Mosaic floors of
four villas of Roman period are the epitome of all these
findings. Other important monuments are Asklipeio, Odeon,
the early Christian Basilica and Fort of Saranta Kolones.
