In the last ten years so much more has been uncovered - and it is not finished yet. An interest in the development of Paphos is enhanced by viewing this area where three churches have been discovered. Also the baths are on the edge of the site, right in the centre of the old town.

Came across this place on my travels and was very nice for no charge for a walk around. The site has a deep history with the various stages of places of worship over the years, worth a visit.

I did not know what St Peter's pillar was, or that it had this delightful little church right in the epicentre. Surrounding the church are mosaics and pillars and uncovered sites of old roman villas. Inside the church are beautiful icons and traditional ecclesiastical woodwork. Stunning little find.

This ancient Greek Orthodox Church is loaned to the Roman Catholics for their use. The Romans let Anglicans use it too. Inside it is fairly typical Orthodox, but with the addition of a nave altar and electronic organ (respectable Ahlborn for those interested). Hugely popular for weddings and very busy with the pastoral care of ex-pats. Outside, the building is... More

A lot of history surrounding this church, and there is now a walkway around the whole grounds to look at the ruins and the beautiful mosaics. We visit every year. Good disabled access.

Luckily, a wedding was being performed and we were allowed to witness it without taking pictures. The wedding was in English! Doesn't take long to walk around this church but do not wear heels as the walking bridges require flats. After, stop off at the cafe across the street for french fries and a drink.

I'd marked St Paul's Pillar on my Google Map and we made our way through Paphos town to find it. As we neared the site, we saw walkways extending in front of us. Not expecting such a big site, we made our way around to the entrance of the walkways and stood astounded at the view. The whole area around... More

There was just something beautiful and charming about this old church in the middle of tourist ridden Pathos which was a welcome escape, a sanctuary, and so easy to walk to from my hotel, I went nearly every morning, for peace, quiet and reflection. I would recommend to any body go.

Located at the same place where St Pauls Pillar is this old church is worthwhile a walk and a quick visit inside.
