Basilica of Saint John

After the House of Mary, we went to Ephesus. There was far too much there, and I have too many pictures still to process, to do justice to it now. So it will have to wait until I'm home, along with the rest of the pictures from the Classical Greek sites.

Selçuk, where this basilica was constructed in the 6th century over the traditional site of John the Apostle's grave, is near Ephesus, but not part of that city.

(The fortress in the background of the picture is from the Ottoman Empire.)
