Aphrodite (Circular) Nature Trail
Of special interest on this trail are the Baths of Aphrodite – where legend has it, the goddess used to take her baths, and the ruins of Pyrgos tis Rigainas (Queen’s Tower), are believed to be part of a medieval monastery complex. There is a huge 100-year-old oak tree near the ruins. The trail offers excellent view points towards Cape Arnaoutis, Polis and Pafos (Paphos) Forest. There are two water fountains with drinking water along the route, one near the ruins of Pyrgos tis Rigainas and one between Loutra and Kakoskali. The path links with the Adonis trail.
