Tamasos Archaeological Site

One of the ancient kingdoms of Cyprus. The archaeological site has unearthed the temple of Aphrodite, two majestic royal tombs, as well as several smaller ones. The sanctuary and the altar are thought to have been built during the Cypro - Archaic II period (600 - 475 BC). Part of the city’s fortifications and copper-processing installations can also be seen while excavations have also brought to light copper workshops associated with Aphrodite – Astarte, and six oversized limestone statues dating back to the 6th century BC, when Cyprus was under Egyptian rule.
