Comments

Beside historical facts and touristic attractions, biblical personages start to be mentioned by the pilgrim while approching the Holy Land. In Tarsus we have the town were the Apostle Paul was born. In Sarepta and on the Mt. Carmel there are important memories related to the story of the Prophet Elijah.
