We visited the ancient city of Philippi which was our first site with ruins in Greece. Saint Paul visited here during his ministry in 49 or 50 A.D. and was put in jail here for a time. Within the city we visited different excavations, including the Forum, the Philippian jail and the Egnatian Way.

Oh hi there Paul's Prison

A travel blog entry by krackenrod1888
