Beautiful to be able to wander around without being hurried along. The mosaics are incredible as is the actual church interior - please show respect in your actions and dress as this is an active church. The information boards at various points are very helpful in being able to understand the history and function of the complex. Well worth spending... More

Good information of the site history posted around the site. Fantastic Roman mosaic floors. It's easy to miss this site as its not well signposted but just walk down the road behind Debenhams and you will find it. There is a wooden walkway all around the site so walking shoes not required.

The friendly warmth of this beautiful church that is hundreds of years old that greets you allowed me to feel welcome and relaxed to worship.

Stumbled across this whilst wandering around Paphos. Raised walkway around the ruins allowing a birds eye view - very interesting. Worth a visit (free) if this kind of thing interests you. Even if it doesn't you can skip around it at no charge!

Very pretty and set amongst the remains of the great monastery/cathedral. The interior is a place of calm.

We could not enter the church, but we went around to see the excavations. Very special to see all the religious purposes it has served though the ages. This place seems a bit hidden but you should definately visit.

We stumbled upon this site when looking for St Paul's pillar ( which is here amidst the remains of the early basilica) The site is a superb one with walkways constructed over the archaeology and clear interpretive panels explaining the phasing of the early structures around the current church. The mosaics are of particularly high quality as are the pillars... More

the church has more influence of the East than the west. the pillars adjacent to the main church is typically Greek, but the overall architecture is quite different from usual European churches
