62 pages of photos and information about Ephesus Archaeological Site.
See also alphabetical index of monuments and people below.
A defensive tower on the peak at the western end of Mount Koressos (Bülbüldağ,
Nightingale Mountain), on the south side of the city of Ephesus. Fortification walls
were built along the top of the mountain during the Hellenistic period. At the time
the foot of this hill was on the coast, overlooking the city's ancient harbour.
Below, to the right of the solar panels, are the ruins of an ancient wall and buildings.
A man-made entrance to a cave or tunnel high on Mount Koressos,
above the road between Ephesus and the House of the Virgin Mary.
A local told me that the network of caves had been explored by archaeologists,
who discovered 25 km of tunnels through the mountain, and that they have not yet
discovered an end to them. Perhaps they were part of the city's water supply system.
See also a cave or vault on the east slope of Mount Pion on gallery page 2.
