The modest Pafos castle is located atop a historic mound in the western portion of the city’s harbour. Its current qualities are the product of multiple treatments. The Frankish overlords constructed the castle in the middle of the 13th century to replace the ‘Saranta Kolones’ Byzantine fort, which was damaged by an earthquake in 1222 A.D. It appears that the Frankish overlords originally constructed two towers: the castle at the harbour and a round tower, vestiges of which are visible 50 metres west of the current tower.
