Selcuk and Ephesus (Efes)

It looks that, after Bergama and Perganum, we still weren’t fed up with ancient history and architecture and we drove towards Ephesus. We stopped in Selcuk, not only because Roman ruins of Ephesus are on its doorstep, but also because of the Temple of Artemis, which used be one of the 7th Wonders of the Antic World –  that Temple was much bigger than the Parthenon at Athens, however nowadays only a little bit more than one pillar remains. In Selcuk, we also visited the Isabey Mosque, which is one of the oldest and most impressive works of architectural art and Museum of Ephesus where  works of art found in the excavations in Ephesus are displayed.
