my wife and I visited this site. Amazing atmosphere but some of the information signs had weathered so as to be unreadable. This was a shame as would have liked to know more.

You can imagine a lot there and all these artefacts are really impressive. Well worth a visit. Not too crowded

A small but beautiful site. There is not much to see on the site. The crowning glory is two whole columns left from the temple. Disabled entrance free. Free parking.

Great site, fabulous remains, easy to get to but you need a car. Near Kourion so a visit to both in one day possible. Excellent site, one let down was the member of staff who was indifferent and curt.

Well worth a trip. Layers of Cypriot history with Christian and Roman remains on top of an earlier Pagan site. Round Pagan worshipping area not often seen in a Roman/Christian setting. €2.50. Toilets but no refreshments.

The Sanctuary of Apollo Hylates is just a bit further up the road from Kourion, but if you like archaeological sites, then it is well worth the extra 3k. There is a lot to see still on the site, including a well reconstructed part of the temple itself. The signs were informative and well written though, as is often the... More

The Sanctuary of Apollo is well worth a visit. It was our destination on our first day in Cyprus. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the ruins. We also visited the Kourion Amphitheatre, which is an easy walk from the Sanctuary.

We visited on a sunny afternoon and were the only people on the site. It is amazing to see how much of the original buildings exist. A fascinating place to visit.

Brought my fiancee here and she enjoyed it tbh it's amazing when you realise the history and the way it's been preserved plus the facts knocking about the place it's €2.50 per ticket and it's close to the chariot /Olympic stadium they built
