Cornucopia’s travel guide


Modern Tarsus is inevitably linked with the apostle Paul, epistoler and tentmaker of the town. The existing St Paul's Church near the Grand Mosque and covered market (1579) dates from the 12th century, though it was heavily refurbished in the 19th century. Some Roman pavements have been excavated in the old town, and the town gate is called Cleopatra's Gate because this is where the Egyptian Queen arrived, sailing up the river Cydnus on her exotic barge, summoned by Mark Antony.
