Now when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia.  
From there they sailed to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work which they had completed.
Acts 14:25-26

Paul set sail for his first journey from the shores you see in the distance. (biblical “Attalia”)
