Kourion Archaeological Site. The remains of Kourion – which was one of the island’s most important city-kingdoms in antiquity – are of the most impressive on the island, and excavations have unearthed many significant finds, which can be viewed at the site.
The city-kingdom was built on the hills of the area and overlooked and controlled the fertile valley of the river Kouris. The magnificent Greco-Roman theatre – the site’s centrepiece – was built in the 2nd century BC. The theatre has been restored and is now used for open-air musical and theatrical performances – mainly during the summer months – making it one of the most popular settings for high-calibre cultural events.
