Old Paphos was originally on a hill a few miles from the sea, to which it had a road. It was the most famous and important place for worshipping Aphrodite in the ancient world, as her mythical birthplace was on the island.
Nea Paphos was founded on the sea near a good natural harbour. It lay about 60 stadia or 12 km northwest of the old city. It would supercede Old Paphos during Roman times.
