Agios Georgios Pegeia Archaeological Site

The Agios Georgios Pegeia Archaeological Site is also known as Agios Yeorgios Archeological Site.  It's located near Pegeia Village, along the coast of Cape Drepano, which is within the Paphos district of Cyprus.

This archaeological site considered to be the most significant early Byzantine site in Cyprus.  Due to the geographical features and location, this settlement was most likely used as a port for ships transporting goods. 






The Agios Georgios Pegeia Archaeological Site includes the ruins of three early Christian basilicas (dating back to the sixth century) with lovely mosaic floors that visitors can still view today.

This extensive non-fortified settlement also includes the ruins of a large house (possibly a bishop's residence), which was built in the Greco-Roman style with a bath and adjoining courtyard, as well as many ruins of smaller houses and other ancient ruins.



The Agios Georgios Pegeia Archaeological Site is a delightful place to visit for both tourists and locals.
