Pafos is a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus. The town is included in the Unesco WHS list.
The Panagia Chrysopolitissa or Ayia Kyriaki church was built in the 13th century over the ruins of the largest Early Byzantine basilica on the island.

The church is surrounded by Roman ruins and old mosaics. Within the compound one can see St. Paul's Pillar, where, according to tradition, Saint Paul was bound and beaten for preaching Christianity.
