Polis tis Chrysochous – Baths of Aphrodite

POLIS CHRYSOCHOUS
37 km north of Paphos
Polis tis Chrysochous lies where there once stood the ancient city-kingdom of Marion, an important commercial centre in the Classical and Hellenistic times. The new local Museum of Polis, Marion/Arsinoe, (Tel: 26 32 29 55) houses an interesting collection of antiquities found in the region. Of interest in tlie centre of the town is the barrel-vaulted church of Agios Andronikos which dates to the 16th century. This was turned into a mosque during the Turkish period, when the northern part was added to it and the wall paintings were covered by an asbestos wash. Recently all the wall paintings, dating to the 16th century, have been uncovered. Next to this church lies the 18th century church of Agia Kyriaki.Beautiful beaches can be found in the surrounding region, picturesque villages as well as interesting churches, such as the churches of Agia Aikaterini (16th century) and Panagia Chorteni (15th century). The area has become an attractive popular resort.

BATHS OF APHRODITE
Akamas Peninsula, near Polis, 48 km north of Paphos. According to legend, the Goddess Aphrodite used to take her beauty baths in a pool of a natural grotto, shaded by a fig tree, which can still be visited. Nature trails set off from Akamas to lead nature lovers to incomparable views of unspoilt land. More details on these trails can be obtained from a special leaflet issued by the Cyprus Tourism Organisation in co-operation with the Forestry Department.
