Pafos - The cradle of Christianity in Cyprus (A)

The Pafos (Paphos) area is full of ecclesiastical monuments, with the first on the list being the Palaiochristian Basilica of Chrysopolitissa in Kato Pafos.

This church has yet another reason to constitute an excellent place of interest, thanks to its relation to Apostolos Pavlos; it still houses the column on which, according to tradition, the Apostle was tied and whipped.

In Peristerona, there is the Ecclesiastical Museum, which is hosted by the Archbishopric of Arsinoes, and houses icons and canonicals, as well as other objects from the villages of the area. The Church of Agia Kyriaki was built on the south aisle of the ruined Palaiochristian Basilica of Chrysopolitissa.

In the Holy Bishopric of Pafos there is the Βyzantine Museum whose collection can easily be compared to that of the Archbishop Makarios III Foundation. In Geroskipou, there is the second church of Cyprus with five domes - as well as significant frescoes - which is dedicated to Αgia Paraskevi and, in Acheleia, we find the Church of Agios Theodosios with significant frescoes that date back to the 13th century, one of which depicts the Apostles Petros and Pavlos, along with a portrait of the donors.

The route then passes from the churches of Panagia tis Katholikis in Kouklia, the Hermitage ‘Palaio Egkleistro’ in Souskiou, and ends in Pano Archimandrita and the Hermitage of Agion Pateron.

Total route length: 53 km.
