“First the mosque, then the church”

Reviewed May 2, 2018

It was built as a mosque during the Ottoman period. After the Ottoman rule in Kavala, the majority of the local people turned Christian because of being a Christian. Great mosaic decorations are included.
This exceptional work is located in the city center, near the aqueducts.

We all know the story.
Paul has a dream that a man from Macedonia asks him to come and visit.
Paul comes by boat and lands in Kavala and the mosaics celebrate the story.
It is nicely done!

On the outside wall of a church since 1923 that started as a mosque in 1520 is something to see. A classic Byzantine mosaic it illuminates St Paul's journey in the area

The first place where Apostle Paul stepped on the ground of Europe is in Kavala. There was built a Monument. Nice and interesting place!
