St Johns Basilica
The church of St John is set below the hilltop citadel in the center of Selcuk. After the death of Christ, St. John came with Mary to Ephesus living most of his life in and around the Ayasoluk Hill and spreading the word of Christianity as St Paul did before him. A 4th century tomb was believed to house his remains, so in the 6th century Emperor Justinian (527-65) erected a magnificent church on top of the tomb.
The Isabey mosque situated just down the hill from the St Johns Church at the foot of the Ayasuluk Hill the huge Isabey Mosque built in 1375 by the Emir of Aydin in a post- Seljuk / pre-Ottoman transitional style is well worth visiting
Temple of Artemis
The Temple of Artemis is situated just 5 minutes walk from the center of Selcuk towards Ephesus, it used to earn sizeable sums of money from the pilgrims paying homage to the ancient fertility goddess Cybele/Artemis. In its prime it was larger than the Parthenon at Athens with 127 columns, all with figures carved around the base. Once one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and today with little left to see but it is a beautiful setting with wonderful views to the Isabey mosque and St Johns Basilica.
Ephesus museum in the center of Selcuk houses a striking collection of artifacts from Ephesus and the surrounding archaeological sites, a small but fantastic museum.
