Places of interest in Agia Napa
The site consists of 19 rock - cut tombs, a small sanctuary &
an ancient quarry situated west of Agia Napa in the Macronissos area. The targets of illegal digging, the tombs were badly looted over the years. Archaeologists believe the dead were placed in clay sarcophagi that were originally covered with three flat tiles. The tombs had a rectangular entrance originally closed with one or two slabs. Most of the chambers are almost identical with a rectangular trench in the middle and three benches at the side. The tombs were used during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Pyres were found on the surface, characteristic of Greek burial customs. The sanctuary is a simple rectangular enclosure, made of large irregular blocks.
