Good information about the site with a lovely authentic dated Cypriot church in the middle of it, worth having a look if you are nearby. Nice walk

I came across Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church by chance on a wander between the harbour and Kings Mall. The site is very mobility friendly with walkways to most parts of the site. The site also houses St Pauls Pillar as well. There was an Anglican service on at the church when I visited (in English). There is a platform that you... More

If you don't plan on visiting the Painted churches in the Troodos region, I would definitely urge you to go inside this church after exploring the archaeological excavations around it. It's free to enter and you can enjoy some of the Greek ortohodox frescoes inside.

Nice ruins which if anywhere else would be chargeable to visit - little run donw but seems to be work ongoing - guess its a sign of the economy at present - well worth a visit

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.
