Reviewed 21 April 2015

Lydia is known as the first person in Europe to respond to the Gospel. She is therefore known as the first to be Baptized on European soil. We had read about this and were thrilled to actually visit where history was made!

The traditional location is now a convent ran by the nuns of St Lydia and consists of a few buildings and a spacious parking area.

There is not a fee to park or visit the location. There is also a concrete path to the riverside and a small seating area is there.

After visiting the riverside, we stopped at the cafe/gift shop and had cake and coffee. We also purchased a few items in the gift shop.
