The Baptistery of St. Paul is located at the entrance of the village Agios Ioannis (St John), near Phaestus. According to tradition, when the Apostle Paul came to Crete and headed to the capital of the island (Gortyn) passed from the point where he taught Christianity for two days. At this place, in 1304, the Baptistery and (later) the church of St. Paul that we see today with the frescoes were built.
