Our walk today took us back through layers of time. We spent hours exploring the Kato Pafos Archaeological Park where art, history, and culture weave across centuries and give us clues to the people who left their footprints on the island. The weather was quite spectacular, so the sea sparkled as it reflected the cloudless sky above, and we are early enough in the season that the grass was still green, and the meadows filled with a profusion of wildflowers.
The highlight for me was undoubtedly the amazing collection of mosaics, dating from the 3rd century BC to the 4th century AD, including this beauty – a large labyrinth with a spectacular centre.
We followed our visit to the ruins with a walk along the modern harbour where we stopped for a chat with this fellow as he wandered freely amongst the fishing boats. (Yes, he is a real pelican.)
