Geroskipou (Yeroskipou) is a coastal town east of Paphos. It is the second biggest municipality in the Paphos District. Geroskipou with its remarkable five-domed Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi, and its Folk Art Museum is known for many years now for its special delight `loukoumi'.

According to the tradition, implied even by the name of the town, in Greek mythology, Yeroskipou is the place where Aphrodite had her "gardens", thus the name "yeros"  which means holy and "kipou" which means garden. Pilgrims from Nea Paphos passed through Yeroskipou before reaching the temple of Aphrodite, at Kouklia. Goddess, donations, sacrifies and many other activities in honour of Aphrodite were taken in that place. Even currently a cave in the town is called Bath of Aphrodite.
