2nd Local Route of Pafos (Paphos) Religious Route

The second ecclesiastical local route of Pafos (Paphos) is longer and starts from Kato Pafos and the Palaiochristian Basilica of Chrysopolitissa, the big church that is directly connected to Apostolos Pavlos, since the column on which he was tied and whipped can be found there.

The Church of Agia Kyriaki, also located in Kato Pafos, is built on the ruins of the north aisle of the Basilica of Chrysopolitissa and dates back to the 15th century. The Holy Bishopric of Pafos hosts the Βyzantine Museum with icons dating back to the 8th, 9th, and up until the 19th centuries.

The next stop is at the Church of Panagia tis Chryselaiousis in Empa, one of the most significant Byzantine monuments of Cyprus. In Tala, the route passes from the Church of Agia Aikaterini, a single-aisled church with a dome, which possibly in its initial form used to be arched. In the same village there is the Μonastery of Agios Neofytos, a Cypriot hermit from Lefkara who left behind a significant work.

The Church of Agia Aikaterini, in Kritou Terra, dates back to the 15th century, and is quite interesting as a church in terms of its architecture. Just before the end of the route, visitors pass from the Church of Agios Andronikos in Polis Chrysochous, which is located on a hill with a wonderful view. The last stop is at the Church of Agios Minas in Neo Chorio at the edges of Akamas peninsula.

Total route length: 85 km.
