Cradle of early Christianity and the main crossroad between East and West, Greece has to offer an endless and colorful journey to religion, history, culture and memories. Saint Lydia’s Baptistry is located at the village Krinides at a close proximity with Philippi just about 15 Km from Kavala city.
The first Christian church in Europe was founded at Philippi (built on top of a tomb of a Macedonian hero) which had become a significant early Christian center following a visit to the city by Paul the Apostle in 49 CE. Lydia was notable as the first European to be baptized there. Lydia, (meaning the woman originated from Lydia, Asia Minor) is mentioned in the New Testament who is regarded as the first documented convert to Christianity in Europe. Several Christian denominations have designated her a saint.
Lydia and Paul first met outside the gates of Philippi, a city in Macedonia, now part of modern Greece. Lydia lived and worked in Philippi, dealing in textiles colored with the purple dye for which the region was famous. Enjoy a full day tour to Saint Lydia’s Baptistry with us, the SKG BUS.
