Perge is just18 kms northeast of Antalya . The ruins are spread on two hills, the theatre on one and the acropolis on the other. According to the legend the city was built by three heros from Troy . Kestros (Aksu) river, which runs near acropolis, made Perge like a port because it was possible to navigate. It is also famous by the fact that when St. Paul started his journeys, he visited Perge in 46 A.D. and preached his first sermon here. That's why it became an important city for the Christians during Byzantine period. This city produced many famous personalities; among them we can mention Varius, the philosopher, the physician Asklepiades, the famous mathematician Apollonius and female roman ruler of the city Plancia Magna.
