According to Greek mythology this is the place where Adonis and Aphrodite would meet and spend time together. Adonis, based on mythology, was the mortal lover of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. It is believed that Adonis and Aphrodite had many children and that these offspring are the people of Paphos. This is also the place where is it said that Adonis died. It is said that Adonis was wounded badly by a person disguised as a wild boar. Adonis managed to go to find his love, Aphrodite at the falls and died in her arms.
Now a days most people visit this popular place to swim in the natural waters in one of the most romantic settings. This natural pool has a beautiful green lagoon colour and wild greenery all around it. You can grab a coffee and chill next to the cool lagoon or wonder the museum and watermill. There is also a small souvenir shop to buy any memorabilia.
This is truly a wonderful place to visit but have in mind there is an entrance fee and also be aware as to how to get there and times that the theme park it open.
