Paphos Wedding Venues

On the West coast, Paphos was the capital of Cyprus in the time of Alexander the Great for more than seven centuries and was a busy, thriving port.  Legend has it that the mythological goddess, Aphrodite, was born on the shores between Paphos and Limassol at ‘Petra Tou Romiou’ more popularly known as Aphrodite’s Rock.  In the legendary love story, Pygmalion fell in love with his ivory statue which was transformed by Aphrodite into Pygmalion’s beautiful bride who gave birth to a child, Paphos, after whom the city was named.
