Paphos...

... Arrival of St. Paul in Pafos

According to written sources, St. Paul accompanied by Mark the Evangelist, entered Pafos through one of the Town entrances (gates), three of which survive to this day (Acts 13.5), “crossing the island to Pafos”.

• The north eastern gate, near and to the east of the theatre of Kato Pafos.
• The northern gate was situated on the hill known as “fabrika”, to the left of the modern road leading to the harbour.
• The north western gate, which is the best preserved, once led to the town from the side of the sea and is the only place where the entrance bridge has survived above the moat around the walls.
