    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Kusadasi, Kusadasi, Turkish Aegean Coast

    We start picking up our guest from the Hotels or from Kusadasi Cruise Port at 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 35100 Turkey

    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 Emmerich’s 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 Emmerich’s descriptions. Archeological evidence showed that the little house was from the 6C AD but that the foundations were from the 1C AD.

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.
