St. Paul Church, St. Pauls Well and surrounding historic quarters is part of the Tentative list of Turkey in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Tarsus was the birth place of the Apostle Paul and he returned here after his conversion. St. Paul’s Church and adjoining well date from much later. Its current structure is a 19th century former Greek Orthodox church. Other structures in Tarsus, such as the Roman Cleopatra Gate and the vernacular buildings of the old city also are included in the proposed site.
