St. Pierre Church is an ancient cave church located just outside modern Antakya. You can observe Antakya from top of the hill where the church was located. Astonishingly beautiful natural site, full of olive trees, becomes even more striking with knowing its history and significance.
It was admitted as the F I R S T C A T H E D R A L O F T H E W O R L D !
“St. Pierre, to whom the church was dedicated, is the founder of the Antakya Church and the archpriest of the first Christian Community here and also the first Pope in the world. St. Pierre church and its surroundings played a significant role in the period of the early Christianity and expansion of the belief. The church is admitted as the first cathedral of the world and was announced as a place of pilgrimage by the Pope in 1963. Because of the building witnessed the first Christians and their meetings, it bears a unique importance.” https://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/5613/
If you go to Hatay, don’t forget to hug the trees of Harbiye waterfall. They are brilliantly amazing!! Harbiye Waterfall is almost 7-8 km from Hatay city center, also known as the Defne Waterfall.

Golden Rules of Running for me:
- Golden Rule One: A strong body will support your running, so don’t try to go from zero to hero, have patience and persistence in your practice, do the basic core exercises, stretch regularly. Stretching make you less sore the day after your run. Listen to your body and take rest when you feel you need. N E V E R C O M P A R E !
- Golden Rule Two: Proper running kit and trainers – They will make running easier and more comfortable. Also, they will give you motivation. Don’t forget the running bra that you will be grateful. Headphone is a significant accessory as listening up beat music makes your mood up. Be careful when you chose your headphone some are really good in the movement and some are not. Hats are wonderful.
- Golden Rule Three: Do NOT eat so much before running. For me, everything has to be well blended – my favourite recipe is banana, oatmeal, dried berries, nuts and cinnamon. Y U M M Y and light!
