About Selcuk

Well, such a little town in the center of history. Have you ever heard of "The Ancient city of Ephesus"?

How about having a taste of aromatic wines in an old town up on the hills of Selçuk. Şirince is like a photo from the past.

Do you know that Virgin Mary's House is in Selçuk? Many pilgrims visit this location regularly.

Also, The Basilica of St.John(apostle of Jesus) is right in the center of Selçuk.

Well, we don't even mention about Kuşadası, a favorite place for the tourists and cruise ships. Well preserved beaches and (maybe for some action) you can find water parks in there. Only 20 min. from Selçuk by car..

Ephesus - UNESCO World Heritage Site

Located within what was once the estuary of the River Kaystros, Ephesus comprises successive Hellenistic and Roman settlements founded on new locations, which followed the coastline as it retreated westward. Excavations have revealed grand monuments of the Roman Imperial period including the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre. Little remains of the famous Temple of Artemis, one of the “Seven Wonders of the World,” which drew pilgrims from all around the Mediterranean. Since the 5th century, the House of the Virgin Mary, a domed cruciform chapel seven kilometres from Ephesus, became a major place of Christian pilgrimage. The Ancient City of Ephesus is an outstanding example of a Roman port city, with sea channel and harbour basin.
