The small church of Agia Kyriaki was later built on the same spot, Here is St Paul's Pillar - the spot where the saint is said to have been tied and lashed 40 times on orders given by the then Roman governor. Paphos was a centre of the cult of Aphrodite and of pre-Hellenic fertility deities. Aphrodite's mythical birthplace was on this island as the rock of Aphrodite and the bath attest. One of the loveliest churches in the Pafos area is the six-domed Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi, in Geroskipou, east of Pafos. Most of the surviving frescoes date back to the 15th century. Ayios Neophytos Monastery is said to have been founded by a Cypriot hermit and writer called Neophytos in the year 1159. Neophytos carved a home for himself out of the mountain rock and it is here that you will find some of the finest frescoes from the Byzantine period dating from the 12th to the 15th century. By the harbour stands Paphos Castle, originally a Byzantine fort built to protect the harbour. It was rebuilt by the Lusignans in the 13th century, less
