PERGE

 

Located in the east of Antalya, Perge is certainly one of the major archaeological sights of Turkey. Although people of Perge believed that their city had been established by the heroes of Trojan war, visitors enjoy the Hellenistic and Roman ruins of the city.  Saint Paul visited Perge during his first missionary trip. Paul, Barnabas and John Mark came to Perge after their time in Cyprus. After arriving to Antalya harbour, they came to Perge either by boat or by Roman road of ancient times. Paul and his friends did not stay in Perge long time. Paul got ill there. It is suggested that he got malaria decease and he wanted to go away from the marshy grounds of the south. Also young member of the group, John Mark left the group. He was either feeling homesick or he was disturbed by the Paul's leadership.
