Paphos...

... The Church of Agia Kyriaki Chrysopolitissa

The church is situated a short distance from the harbour and was built over the ruins of the largest Early Christian basilica found in Cyprus. The “pillar” where legend has it St. Paul was tortured and given “forty bar one lashes” for preaching Christianity, is situated in the church courtyard, amongst the ruins of an older medieval church and beneath a terebinth tree.
