Tombs of the Kings

Tombs of the Kings

An atrium within one of the burial complexes at the Tombs of the Kings archaeological site in Paphos. This necropolis was used from the third century BC (Hellenistic period) through to the fourth century AD (Roman and early Christian periods) for the burial, not of kings, but of high-ranking officials and families. Apparently in the middle ages people used to actually live in these tombs and made some alterations to the structures (cosy!).

  1. Awesome shot! Love everything about it. I didn’t know people used to live in there. I don’t know about you but I, for one, would get the creeps knowing it’s a tomb! šŸ™‚
