History and Architecture of Ephesus

Founded in the 10th century BC, Ephesus was an important city of the Ionian Greeks, then later under the control of the Romans. It was a center of early Christianity and was home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Today, visitors can explore the well-preserved ruins of Ephesus, including the Library of Celsus, the Great Theater, and the Temple of Hadrian. These ancient structures provide a glimpse into the city's past and showcase the remarkable architecture and engineering of the time.

Cultural Experiences in Ephesus

Beyond the ancient ruins, visitors to Ephesus can also experience the vibrant culture of the modern city. The nearby town of Selcuk offers traditional Turkish markets, where you can sample local foods and shop for handcrafted souvenirs.

Ephesus is also home to the House of the Virgin Mary, a holy site for Christians who believe that Mary lived there during her final years. A visit to the house and the nearby Chapel of St. John offers a spiritual experience that complements the city's rich history.
