The presence of baths dates back to the ancient times, when they were considered large construction and located in public spaces. Public baths are found in Cyprus too, and emerged at different periods in history. The Baths in Paphos were built during the Frankish period, around the end of the 14th - early 15th century and are located within the same complex where the early Christian Basilica of Ayias Kyriakis (Chrisopolitissa) is. The Baths consist of a central stone-built structure with lateral extensions. In the early Ottoman times, some of the semi-circular vaulted roofs were replaced with domes.
The Medieval - Frankish Baths are one of the few surviving public buildings of this period in Paphos.
