Martyrium of St Philip the Apostle information
The extraordinary octagonal Martyrium of St Philip the Apostle at Hierapolis is built on the site where it's believed that St Philip was martyred. The arches of the eight individual chapels are all marked with crosses. Views from here are wonderful, and few of the regular tours bother to bring visitors up this far. Rough tracks head uphill to the martyrium from the Roman theatre.
