Pinsteps. St. Pauls column
Places to visit in Пафос. Languages: ru, en, he

The pillar or column of St. Paul. According to local tradition, people from Paphos tied St. Paul to a pole and beat him with whips thirty-nine times. Surprisingly, medieval travelers do not mention this pillar or column, but only describe the underground prison of the Apostle. According to the Acts of the Apostles, Barnabas, Paul, and Mark visited Paphos in 45 AD during their first missionary journey to Cyprus. In Paphos, the then capital of the island and the residence of the Roman ruler, the apostle Paul preached Christianity. The Roman governor of Cyprus, Sergius Paul, converted to this new religion, began the Christianization of Cyprus. Thus, this church is often known as the "Church of St. Paul."

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 epraisman@gmail.com 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
