About The Virgin Mary's House, Selcuk

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.
