For the current city of Beroea, see Veria.

Berea is mentioned in the book of Acts in the Bible, for the ancient city of Beroea, now known as Veria (or Veroia).

It is a small city on the eastern side of Vermion Mountains (north of Mount Olympus), where Paul of Tarsus preached, and where the people examined the Scriptures to see if his preaching was true (Acts 17:10–13).
