St. Paul in Paphos...

...St. Paul's Departure

According to Evsevius (religious history), St. Paul left by ship from Pafos for Perga in Pamphylia (Acts 13.5 “Paul and the others left Pafos and sailed to Perga in Pamphylia”).

The harbour at Kato Pafos Situated in the harbour of Kato Pafos, perhaps the most popular part of the town, is the medieval castle. Originally built as a Byzantine fortress in order to protect the harbour, it was later rebuilt by the Lusignans in the 13th century but the Venetians pulled it down in 1570 because they could not defend it against the Turks, who in turn rebuilt it and fortified it when they occupied the island.
