Pass By: layda Avantgarde

We start picking up our guest around 08:30 - 09:00 am. Then start driving to Selcuk Town where we will spend our whole day with visiting the destinations.

Stop At: Meryemana (The virgin mary's house), Selcuk, Izmir Province, Turkish Aegean Coast

It is known that the Virgin Mary came to Ephesus and lived here for some time. Whether or not she died in Ephesus was not known until Anne Catherine Emmerichs vision. The stigmatized German nun who had never been to Ephesus had a vision of the House of the Virgin Mary and described it in detail to the German writer Clemens Brentano who later published a book about it. Catherine Emmerich died in 1884. In 1891 Paul, Superior of the Lazarists from Izmir read about her vision and found a little building which corresponded with Emmerichs descriptions. Archeological evidence showed that the little house was from the 6C AD but that the foundations were from the 1C AD.

Stop At: The Temple of artemis, Selcuk, Izmir Province, Turkish Aegean Coast

Artemis was the Greek goddess, the virginal huntress and twin of Apollo, who replaced the Titan Selene as Goddess of the Moon.
The ancient temple was built around 650 BC to the cult of Artemis, was constructed on a site already sacred to the Anatolian Mother Goddess, Cybele. The temple was financed by the wealthy king of Lydia and the marshy ground was selected for the building site as a precaution against future earthquakes.

    Very helpful. Fatima explained everything quite well. We didn’t feel rushed as she let us take our time. We were glad that we didn’t have to go to the leather store.Even going to the carpet factory was pleasant as the salespeople weren’t pushy and understanding if you didn’t want to buy. Highly recommended.
