Kato Paphos

Touch Graphics Europe is pleased to have participated in the design and production of a set of Braille signage for the accessibility to the archaeological site of Kato Paphos in Cyprus.

 The Department of Antiquities, aiming at increasing the relationship between all citizens and the archaeological sites and monuments of Cyprus, announces the presentation of the pilot project entitled “Tours for visually impaired persons at the House of Dionysos, Archaeological Site of Kato Paphos”.

The objective of the Department of Antiquities is to provide access to all citizens to the archaeological heritage of Cyprus. In particular, it is the first time that an opportunity is given to visually impaired persons to get familiar with and understand, in a direct and tangible manner, the archaeological material and related aspects, such as a mosaic and its manufacture technology. Most importantly, this project highlights further the value and great significance embedded in the preservation and promotion of our archaeological heritage.

In collaboration with the School for the Blind “St Barnabas”, bilingual informative panels have been produced in the Braille writing system and placed at the “House of Dionysos”, while a plan of the same house in relief, enables a direct understanding of the architectural organization.
