Not far from the mythological birthplace of Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty lies the Municipality of Geroskipou. Now a suburb of Pafos town this once tiny hamlet was a centre for silk making, and also lays claim to having been the site of Aphrodite’s sacred garden. The 11th century five domed Byzantine Church of Agia Paraskevi situated in the main square is well worth a visit. A few minutes’ walk from the church is the house of Zimboulaki which has been made into a rather special Folk Art museum. Those with a sweet tooth will also relish a visit and tasting session at the Aphrodite Delights shop opposite the main square. Here the family run business of making delicious Loukoumi is always open to visitors, and these boxes of delicious pillows of sweet delight make for superb and inexpensive gifts for family back home.
