Visit the remains of the ancient city of Pamphylia at Perge Ancient City, where Saint Paul preached his first sermon in 46 CE before embarking on his journeys. Pass between the massive antique gates and stroll down the remnants of a colonnaded boulevard to a nymphaeum--a shrine dedicated to nymphs--which lies on the slopes of the acropolis. Dating back to the Bronze Age, the acropolis offers encompassing views of the ruins. The site also includes city walls, a theater with a 52 m (170 ft) stage, a stadium, an agora, a necropolis, a gymnasium, and Roman baths. Join a guided tour to learn historical details about the site.
