We were having a wander from our hotel into the old Paphos area when we came across this archiological site. It includes lots of ruins, mosaic floors and a church which is the focal point and still in use. Wander around the elevated walkways for great views and entry is free so shouldn't really be missed. The other site, the... More

This church, located beside the site of the Pillar of St Paul, has no entry fee and is worth a look. The entire site is well built for touring as the walkways are new and very accessible.

In a quiet back street this little church and ancient remains is a tranquil place to meander. Information boards help to picture what the various ruins could have looked like. Some of the terms used were a bit vague though. Pretty mosaic floors.

we stumbled across this taking a short cut behind Debenhams, it's beautiful old church that is still in use, we visited it on a Sunday morning when mass was being read, there's some fascinating history with it along with st Pauls pillar,

Panagia Chrysopolitissa church (13th c) is built on ruins of a huge early christian basilica (4th c). This is an excellent place for reflection, which many of the modern churches lack, as the gilded iconostas combined with the old bare stone walls of the church create a special atmosphere.

Go and see this church before you visit the Kykkos Monastery or you will be disappointed with this church if you go to Kykkos first. Although it is a beautiful church in a lovely panoramic setting. With some great Icons.

Set in behind restaurants and housing but worth the visit. Pretty little church in the middle of ancient ruins, added attraction is st paul's pillar.

Amazing way to get in touch with your own spirituality.. Loved everything about this place - the church, the St. Paul's Pillar, the atmosphere of this place.
