St. Paul’s Pillar

To the west of the Panagia Chrysopolitissa Church sits a rather plain-looking marble column that, if it weren’t for the small plaque in front of it, would probably go unnoticed. This pillar is said to be the site where St. Paul was tied up and whipped in the first century. The apostle was persecuted by the Romans for attempting to spread Christianity in Cyprus, though he was eventually successful in his mission, with the Roman governor of Cyprus Sergius Paulus ultimately converting.
