Photographer's Note

Tombs of the Kings (Royal tombs) is a necropolis in Paphos, an important remnant of the ancient world, it is a UNESCO world heritage site. More than 100 underground graves carved in the rocks were found at the cemetery, now partly covered with sand dunes.
The necropolis was built during the Hellenistic period (3rd century BC), in this place were buried the higher administrative officials, outstanding personality and nobility of the ancient Paphos.
The name "royal graves" was inspired by the sheer grandeur and majesty of the tombs.

The main photo shows a wider view of the necropolis, in WS two photos of different graves.
