Saint Polycarp Church

4/5
8 Reviews
Church
Recommended Sightseeing Time: 1 hour
Address: Akdeniz,35210 Konak/İzmir

What people are saying:

It is a place that shocked me. Half of the buildings inside have been destroyed. With the surrounding flowers and plants, the mood is very beautiful. There, there is a tomb from the 4th century AD, and it is believed that the body of St. John is buried in it. The author of the "Bible" has guided countless people who believe in Christianity to come to visit this holy place.

    Simply on the outside, majestic on the inside

    The exterior of the church may seem simple and you may even walk pass it. The entrance can be easily missed where it's a small beige gate which you have to buzz yourself in, so keep a look out for it....

    Beautiful church!!!

    Do not be deceived by its understated facade and appearance, this church is marvellous and richly decorated inside! Had quite a bit of trouble locating it as none of the locals know it, surprisingly. ...

    Marvelous Church

    I was very astonished when entered to this Church. Very holy and marvelous paintings in its ceiling and walls. Of course I was happy that I visited when in Izmir

    4 stars for four centuries

    Small -ish church but considering construction techniques 4 centuries ago, we thought this is grand.
