Byzantine Church, Pamukkale

Historic Site · Tourist Spot
At Byzantine Church, see the site where Phillip the Apostle used to preach to early Christians. Part of the ancient city of Hierapolis, the church was allegedly founded by Apostle Paul during his visit of Ephesus. According to legend, several early Christian martyrs lost their lives and two unmarried daughters of St Phillip were entombed there next to their father. To reach the site, you'll need to walk uphill, across the bridge, and up a flight of steps. The views from the top are well worth the trip, but if you'd prefer to save your strength take a minibus from the thermal pools.
