Take your time to find this place and visit it. I found it one morning when strolling around and could not believe it was just tucked away and was free to visit as the ruins and mosaics are amazing. If this site was in the UK it would cost at least £10 to visit and there would be lots of... More

The actual Anglican/Catholic church that sits on the site is a small squat medieval structure but its the remains of the roman era cathedral with mosaics and pillars which is the draw here. The locals have built a walkway with plenty of info boards that tell the history of what must have been an impressive building in what would have... More

We took the open bus tour trip, and this was the second stop, actually walking distance from the main bus depo in Pafos, the St Peter's Pillar is located in the church grounds too. Clean, serene, please respect the Greek Orthodox churches, and always cover your shoulders, and knees, there are scarves on entering the church. I wanted to light... More

This is a church built on the site of an earlier church, the remains of which are clearly visible and well preserved. It is used by Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches. As practising believing Anglicans we have visited the Anglican services here a few times but we have never been made to feel welcome or very inspired by the... More

Set just off the tourist area this is a little oasis of Cypriot tradition. Upgraded walkways have been installed over the last couple of year which allow you to safely walk across the ruins situated just outside the church itself. Having first been in the church approximately 15 years ago when my brother in law was married in Paphos, there... More

You must visit this beautiful little church used by worshippers of the Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Church of England. It is absolutely beautiful inside. There is a 3 year waiting list to get married here-you will see why when you visit.

Visited with a friend just before Orthodox Easter, lovely little church with raised pathways all around it, recommend to see it. Sign outside advises not to wear anything too short.

We went to the 8.15 am Church of England Service at this Church on the Sunday morning during our recent short visit to Cyprus. It was Orthodox Easter during our stay but this Service was in the Church of England cycle, post-Easter. Well-attended, friendly and very nicely done - we were spoken to by a couple of the regulars after... More
