  • Unfortunately, in this place where in the Church entrance security found in the mosaics was and how old was still destruction but destruction very clearly obvious, unfortunately we can't protect this kind of sacred and historical sites I'm afraid ...

  • Stauris D. carved into rocks West of 13 meters deep, 9.5 meters wide and 7 meters high, consists of a cave. It is a natural cave. A converted church with additions. One of the 12 disciples of Jesus 29-40 A.d. to Antioch came between and tried to propagate Christianity the first religious meeting for the first time in this Church Congregation has taken the Christian name. Museum card input. A small structure. Definitely worth a visit.

  • The natural cave, called Saint Peter's is approximately 9.5 m, 13 m long and 7 m high. The exterior façade, built of limestone is of 1863. Inside one can still see traces of frescoes (destroyed by moisture) and a water collection tank that in ancient times the ruscellava time used perhaps as baptismal font that you attributed healing capacity (now drained for earthquakes). Legend has it that this place was the first church built by St. Peter for the celebrations of the first Christians; This version seems unlikely, given the presence of so many pagan niches around which suggests a holy place above, then it cannot be used for worship at the time Bandit in the Empire, mainly due to its remoteness from the Jewish quarter, in whose communities were born the first followers of Jesus. Entrance 15 TL, time for visiting approximately 5 minutes.
