Antakya is the seat of the Hatay Province in southern Turkey, near the border with Syria. Known as Antioch in ancient times, the city has historical significance for Christianity, as it was the place where the followers of Jesus Christ were called Christians for the first time. So need to go there!

Mosques, churches and synagogues, the narrow streets of Antioch's strongly shaped by the past by standing side by side, are an example to the world about religious tolerance.

St. Peter's Cave Church- Antioch (Antakya)- the first Christian church ever!
