... maneuvering in and out of others with their chunk of communion bread in their hands. We took in the large, overly extravagant décor of this basilica. Magnificent columns line the outside of the church while the iconography was near the apse at the front of the church. This is where the sacrament of communion was taking place when we arrived. Nena pointed out the different aspects of the decoration and took us over to see the relic of St. Demetrius ...

Philippi had be destroyed by an earthquake which ruined many of the great structures. Our tour guide Nena explained that for this site and the many other we were going to see, they are in the condition ...

Oh hi there Paul's Prison

A travel blog entry by krackenrod1888
