Turkey simply does not get enough credit for it's role in Christian history. The Basilica of Saint John was built by the Byzantines on the final resting place of Saint John the Evangelist. Today it's kind of a marvelous open air ruin on top of the hill overlooking town but it's visited by almost no one except a handful of eager tourists and stray cats.
