St. Paul Church (Yalvac)


It is in the ancient city Pisidia Antiocheia on a 1 km north of the town Yalvac. It is the biggest church of the city and it is situated on 200 meters south of the Roman Bath and adjacent to walls of the city. The basilica planned construction which is one of the first Christian churches was founded on a synagogue. Saint Paul Church in the ancient city Antiocheia in Yalvac took its name from Saint Paul who toured the city. Saint Paul arrived the city in 46 AD with Saint Barnabas and sermonized his first official sermon in the synagogue here. Because Saint Paul visited the city twice after this arrival both the church and Antiocheia became important for the Christian world.
