Paphos Re-visited

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My last post on this blog before I moved here was about Paphos in the throws of being restored/re-modelled, I expressed concerns about how it would look and how it would be executed. 2017 was the year Paphos represented Cyprus as a city of culture  in Europe and while the work was being carried out it was chaos  the roads were impossible to navigate in the centre and queues of traffic were everywhere. The pavements were non existent for pedestrians  with uneven surfaces everywhere and shopkeepers were frustrated and angry that their shops became inaccessible resulting in loss of trade and income. Many closed, we hoped temporarily but fears were this newly rejuvenated  part would end up a ghost town.

We are well into 2018 now and still it is not entirely finished but the work that has been done and I would say that is about 95% now, is better than I among many would have hoped for. The restoration on buildings has been sensitively carried out, the new blends excitingly with the old and many innovative ideas have been executed exceedingly well. I have posted just a few photos which illustrate this.

There has been a recent surge in murals which add a vibrant feel to the place these too are of excellent quality, every time I visit I see new examples. A new  and varied group of cafes has opened up attracting the young as well as some interesting artisan/boutique shops. Although some of the old shopkeepers have returned some just could not bear the loss of income and had to close.


We all hope the future will be bright for old Paphos and will watch its future development with interest.
