Three hundred years after the death of St. John, a small chapel was constructed over the grave in the 4th century. The church of St John was changed into a marvelous basilica during the region of Emperor Justinian (527 -565 AD). The final attraction is the Temple of Artemis in the town of Selcuk.

Our Tour in Kusadasi was perfect ! Our driver was polite and nice and our guide was excellent she was knowledgeable and friendly we were collected on time from our meeting point and taken safely to our tour with air condtitioning and bottled water was offered to us.I myself would not be very reglious but the trip to Virgin Mary House was incredible with a beautiful small house situated on top of a mountain and plenty to see and reflect on. Ephesus blew me away what an amazing insight to the 1st century steeped in history a must see if you ever visit this area or Turkey
