Some lovely carvings and statues in this part of Ephesus. There is so much to see and some is more spectacular than others.

Not a whole lot here, most of this monument has been reconstructed with modern concrete during early restoration, and a pretty shabby job. See the explanation of the monument in the attached photo.

This is supposedly a tower-like structure but what remains is just the bottom half of the monument. It is also one of those structures that was not restored properly due to the poor restoration practices from many years ago.

Originally a four sided monument with an arched door on each side; all that is left are two of the carved figures that would have flanked each of the doors. It is impossible to visualize what the monument looked like without a quality informational/photo book to carry with you during your visit. Like many of the 'points of interest' in... More

Just at the corner of Curetes Street this monument has something modern on it. What we see today is a small percentage of the original. And that's why it gives the impression of a modern sculpture. The monument was constructed in 1st c.AD, during the reign of Roman Emperor Augustus, by the grandson of the Dictator Sulla, a hero for... More

Between the Roman baths and the Celsus Library, check out the Nike tablet also. There are some interesting details nearby, the waterworks, tombs and a few temples.
