One of the seven wonders of the world, Ephesus, which is estimated to have been founded in BC 245, offers you a history of approximately 2250 years.

This city, where Ionians, Lydians, Persians and Romans ruled at different times, contains many cultures and history.

After the ancient city of Ephesus fell into Roman hands, it became one of the most important trade centres in the world. 

In addition, this ancient city played a very important role in the spread of Christianity. 

Many clergymen visited here and spent the last days of their lives worshipping in the house of the Virgin Mary.

At the same time, according to a belief, the city of Ephesus was founded by the first female warriors, the Amazons. With the ongoing excavations, it was determined that there were two other ancient cities under the city.
