The Rock of Aphrodite is a few kilometres to the west of Pissouri village. Its Greek name is Petra tou Romiou or ‘The Rock of the Greek’. Legend has it that Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, rose from the waves in this strikingly beautiful spot. There are several versions of the story of the goddess’s birth and all so very beautiful stories.
