Probably the biggest reason for people coming to Philippi is to experience and walk through the ruins of the city that had the claim of being the first Christian congregation in Europe. Philippi is a hot destination for people coming to Greece on pilgrimage tours and cruises. In Philippi, Paul and Silas were accused of provoking abnormalities in the city and for having unusual habits. The two men were imprisoned but a massive earthquake opened the prison’s doors and freed the Apostels. Paul returned to Philippi three more times and supported the city also financially.
