The Basilica of St. John

The Basilica was a basilica in Ephesus Ancient City. The Basilica was constructed by Justinian I in the 6th century. One of the apostle, most beloved and youngest,

St. John, also known as St John Theologos lived here. ( Jesus entrusted to the mother to Theologos)

Theologos lived here, wrote Bible and died here.Theologos tried to spread the Christian faith and added new believers to community.

In the 6th century had earthquake. After in 7th century, moved to Ayasuluk.

That was a short information about St. John Basilica.

When i was visited the St. John Basilica, i was working as a translator in the same time. And it was raining. It wasn’t easy to visit while it’s raining.I couldn’t take pictures much. Before you visit there, make a plan. Look at the weather. 🙂

I was listening to guider, try to translate and trying to take pictures under the rain in the same time. And i have got many questions too.

The basilica is in Selçuk city, Izmir Province. It’s close to Ephesus Ancient City, Şirince village and Kuşadası city.

    How exciting! I have never heard of this place before, and it makes me want to explore more. The day looked gloomy, but also refreshing. Cleansing the site.
