Early Christian Basilica-St.Paul’s Pillar-Chrysopolitissa

The church was built in the 13th century over the ruins of the largest Early Byzantine basilica on the island. St. Paul’s Pillar is situated in the church courtyard, where according to legend the Apostle was flogged before converting the then Roman governor Sergius Paulus to Christianity.
