The Catacombs of Saint Solomoni, Kato Pafos, Pafos

Although we have passed many times from the location of the Catacombs of Saint Solomoni in Pafos, it was the first time we decided to visit the place.

On the outside all you can see is a sign and a big tree with many handkerchiefs hanging. That is a custom for many believers who pray to the Saint to cure a disease they have.

We followed the stairs leading us to the catacombs were some icons are located on the walls around mainly pictures of Saint Solomoni.

Unfortunately for us it was almost dark and we could see much so we recommend a visit while there is still light. The area is not big and all around you can see small caves were the Saint used to spend her time.

One of the caves is locked with a metal door which indicates the place were the Saint spend most of her time. Visitors hang their handkerchiefs there as well.
