                                                                                                                                Acts 13:13-14;14:25

As the capitol of the region of Asia Minor called Pamphilylia, this city was served by the port of Attalia (today called Antalya) on the Mediterranean Sea.

Just over five miles from the port, the city enjoyed the constant availability of products from both east and west, as well as the moderate climate of a Mediterranean city.

The city rivaled Ephesus in its beauty (though a bit smaller) and celebrated its Greek culture in architecture and presentation. St. Paul and St. Barnabas arrived here along with Baranabas’ nephew John Mark, who abandoned the team from here. This proved to be a point of contention that eventually divided St. Paul and St. Barnabas.
