Saint Paul's Pillar - Review
The Saint Paul's Pillar is the highlight of a church more commonly known as the Church of Agia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa.The church is a symbol of many incarnations of Christian worship, along with Basilicas and churches built on top of one another over a very lengthy period of time. The church is very informative about the building belonging to different ages. The church makes for a very peaceful and calm atmosphere and is a recommended visit in Paphos.

Saint Paul's Pillar, Paphos Reviews
A beautiful location and so much history.St Paul,and a Danish king who was on his way to the crusader wars is buried here.You can go inside the church too.It took a few days to understand how much history is in this town.I found more catacombs on the road out of town,same side of the road past the hope tree.25.04.2018.If you are here around this date walk between the fences,the catacombs are on your right,strangely hidden away.Free to visit.The walkway around the church here is very much wheelchair and buggy friendly.The catacombs sadly aren't.The first few days were spent exploring Paphos.I really hope you have a great time here,as i did.
Fantastic history, You can see the pillar where Paul the Apostle was scurged. If you like history this is 5 stars
Such a beautiful location located close to Paphos port in Cyprus. Easy to access and no ticket. Ruins of a gothic-Latin church. It’s the place where is believed that the inhabitants of paphos tortured Saint Pavlos when he visited Paphos in 45 A.C. Some mosaics and a really nice walk through the ruins. The church which is still in use is really impressive. Worth to visit.
Such an amazing place to visit. Not within the archaeological park, but just a 7 min walk from the restaurants side of the harbour.
Ayia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa Church was built around 1500 AD as a Latin Church on the site of a small church which was destroyed in 59 AD by an earthquake. About 100 years after its construction and following the Turkish invasion of 1570, it became the Byzantine Cathedral of Kato (Lower) Paphos.
