St. Paul's Well - an ancient stone well located in the ruins of Tarsus, Turkey. Tarsus was the hometown of the apostle Paul (Acts 9:11), a city of great importance (Acts 21:39) as a learning center of the ancient world. The well is in a courtyard held by tradition to be the site of Paul's house. The remains of the house are protected under glass. The site is a pilgrimage destination for some, and the water from the well is believed to have healing powers.
