- What’s On
Dominated by a 15-towered Byzantine fortress on Ayasoluk Hill, Selçuk is worth a few hours' consideration when visiting Ephesus. Beneath the castle are the ruins of the 6th-century Basilica of St John, commissioned by Justinian I, with 11th-century frescoes in a chapel. The Apostle wrote the Book of Revelations here and is said to have brought the Virgin Mary to Ephesus. The crypt is believed to contain his tomb. The restored İsa Bey Mosque, dating from 1375, is nearby.
