The Virgin Mary's House - Review

Located on the slopes of the “Bulbul” mountain, this shrine has a wonderful ambience, hidden behind the greenery. The shrine was rediscovered by a German nun, Anne Catherine Emmerich. The legend says, the Virgin Mary spent her last few days on the earth in this House.

The House has that typical Roman architecture, that is, it is made of stone. However, in the 4th century, a church was built combining this house and the grave of the Virgin Mary. Inside the house, there were around four rooms; anteroom, bedroom, praying room and a room with fireplace. Today, only one room beside the altar and some part of the central portion is open for public visit. It is also an important pilgrimage for the devotees.

The Virgin Mary's House, Selcuk Reviews

  • A holy relaxing place to be visited frequently, like once a year as we do. Let your wishes happen and come all true.

  • A must see place for everyone, aspecialy for christians. The house of virgin Mary. Beautiful place, protected by local municipality for the visitors. The chapel is sponsored with your money gifts and a christian foundation. I was here: 22 July 2018

  • While in cappadocia we were very pleased to have had the opportunity to visit the house of virgin Mary. The house was discovered in the 19th century by following the descriptions in the reported visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824), a Roman Catholic nun and visionary, which were published as a book by Clemens Brentano after her death. While the Catholic Church has never pronounced in favour or against the authenticity of the house, it nevertheless has maintained a steady flow of pilgrimage since its discovery. Anne Catherine Emmerich was Beatified by Pope John Paul II on October 3, 2004. Instagram @profnasr

  • I was very happy our tour group visited. There is not much to see but fascinating to learn more about the history of the Virgin Mary.

  • Alot of build up for a small shrine. I think it is worth seeing and I am glad I went. We spent all of 10 minutes there and that was plenty long enough
