The settlement of Perge dates to 1,000 B.C.
A city of considerable importance during the Hellenistic period,
Perge is where St. Paul preached his first sermon. Located inland from the
Mediterranean, Perge's ruins are vast, including an
agora, theater, stadium and baths. Many of the statues and relics are now housed
in the Antalya Museum.
