Places to visit in Пафос. Languages: ru, en, he

In Cyprus, Paul preached and Christianity appeared on the island long before it became the religions of the rulers of the empire. Ancient stories about Salome and her seven sons, apparently impressed so much by early Christians, who were repeatedly persecuted by the Roman authorities, that the image of the mother and her tortured sons created a belief that the events took place in these ancient caves. The cult began to develop rapidly, and not only did early Christians live here, but they also created an underground church. Salome began to be honored as an intercessor and healer, and the source of water became a miracle. Today, people leave cuts of tissue with requests for healing, and the holy water of the source cures eye diseases. They say it is transparent to such an extent that it is not visible.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Paphos Historic places and a short shopping. My trip of Nov 26, 2018

A spontaneous walk through the city told the legends of ancient churches and the history of the Jewish mother, who became the patron saint of the ancient Roman catacombs. Also, the city’s biggest mole was beautifully decorated for Christmas, there was a very beautiful ceramic workshop and the revelation that the most delicious meat dish on the island is connected with theft. It was wonderful adventure! Translated with Google Translate
