St. Paul in Perge

Perge is one of the cities that St. Paul visited twice during his first journey. He came by sea to Perge at the start of his first voyage. On his way back he visited Verge again and preached the word of God to the Population.
Most of the churches that have survived to the present in Perge are in basilica-style and date from the 5th and 6th C. A.D. along with the churches thought to be parts of a monastery complex. The symmetrical towers that are the symbol of Perge were at one time situated on either side of the city's most important entrance gate. It is probable that St. Paul entered the city by this gate and that he went down the column-lined street beyond it.
Perge is also the starting point of the St. Paul trail realised by KateClow. If you want to follow in the footsteps of St. Paul by walking on ancient roads that have come down to us in a good state of repair after hundreds of years you can follow this route or at least some sections of it.
