13th Century Church built over an early Byzantine basilica, this includes St. Paul's Pillar, where it is believed he as flogged. You can still see the mosaics on the floor of the basilica. This was an interesting stop yet not one of our favorites of the tour.

Got wed in this church in august 2012, beautiful little church with a lot of history, nice quiet area, make sure to visit the little coffe shop and second hand store run by the priests.

There's not much to see around here, but the church in the middle of the archeological site does look quite nice.
The Debenham's and supermarket right in front of it kind of spoil the whole vibe of the place, though...

This is worthy of your time, a real tour de force of archaeology and ecclesiastical history.This is a most impressive excavated site, dominated by the main church Agia Kyriaki. Which itself is surrounded by modern elevated walkways enabling passage and wonderful viewing of the foundations of various 4th century buildings including a Christian basilica.
It is an interesting walk, with no charge, and is one that children could easily enjoy.
The church has undergone many "improvements " over the years but remains a focus for the local community, and internally it is exquisite with a icons and screens.
The so called St. Paul's Pillar forms a very small part of the excavated site.
Free and definitely worth spending an hour or so.

Quiet haven oozing history hidden just behind Debenhams off the harbour! Walkways allow you to get up close to mosaics/ancient pillars/columns - informative panels and historic church still used - and it's free!
