While the Church of Panagia Theoskepasti of today isn’t an ancient ruin as most sites in Kato Paphos, it was actually built over a 10th-century Byzantine church. Even so, most of the architectural features of the old church are meticulously preserved. The church is also very unique – set in a modern neighbourhood street but perched upon a tiny rock base of its own.

Inside, the church is bright, with a huge iconostasis that’s worth checking out – there are well over 100 icons in it. In all, the Church of Panagia Theoskepasti is a great visit for a sense of calm, only several minutes’ stroll from the municipal seaside.
