Pinsteps. Church of Panagia Theoskepasti
Places to visit in Пафос. Languages: ru, en, he

Panagia Theoskepasti is a church dedicated to the Holy Mother of God. The word Panagia itself denotes the Virgin Mary. And here, the compound word “Theoskepasti” comes from the Greek word “Teos” and “skepazo”, which means “God” and “curtain”. This name is connected with the tradition, according to which, in 649, when Arabs were raided by Paphos, only the Temple of the Most Holy Mother of God standing on a hill, which “curtained” the enemy's gaze from a dense cloud, survived. Since that time, the church has been given the nickname God-hooded Teoskepasti. Translated with Google Translate

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
