If you want to see one of the oldest churches of cristianity, then you should visit the church of the holy Petrus at Antakya.
This place is about 196 Kilometers away from Adana, and in medieval times it was called Antiochia.
All three religions can be seen in the town. The town awaits you also with a lot of remnants of the past centuries.
It´s worth a visit.
