Aphrodite's Rock - sacred destinations (sitios de interés)

Descripción del sitio


According to ancient tradition, the goddess Aphrodite was born from the waves on the site off the coast of Cyprus. Petra tou Romiou, a rock off the shore along the main road from Paphos to Limassol, has been regarded since ancient times as the birthplace of Aphrodite. It is said that in certain weather conditions, the waves rise, break and form a column of water that dissolves into a pillar of foam. With imagination, this looks for just a moment like an ephemeral, evanescent human shape.
