With interests in in the early church and the apostles it was amazing to see the detail which still stood, the columns, mosaics and remnants of the early 3rd century church. It was truly a moving experience.

I'm lucky enough to remember this site from before they put up the irredeemably ugly concrete and steel walkways. It had a certain peace and was rather beautiful in it's way. Now, as a site it's rather nasty. Apparently all the locals hate what has been done too

I happened across this little gem of an archaeological site having left Kato Paphos by the side exit. What an interesting find. Lovely carved pillars and mosaics from circa 4c AD and a pretty little later church - not open at my time of visiting unfortunately. Doesn't take long to wander around, probably 30 minutes at most. I also stopped... More

We were expecting a little chrch and some ruins of a big basilica with the only interest of the myth of St Paul's pillar but the area is well arranged, signposted and ith plenty of explanations in a nice archological area. Is free and worthwhile

Located on the historical sacred site where St. Paul's pillar is found ( see reviews for that ) this is a peaceful, cool, and tranquil place to visit. There is a basket of 'clothing' near the door for you to cover yourself to remain respectful if you have bare shoulders or knees ( I was fortunately wearing a long dress... More

13th Century Church built over an early Byzantine basilica, this includes St. Paul's Pillar, where it is believed he as flogged. You can still see the mosaics on the floor of the basilica. This was an interesting stop yet not one of our favorites of the tour.
