The pretty town Selcuk is located 18km northeast of Kusadasi and 5 km northeast of Ephesus. It is a little town with 27.600 population in the 3th biggest city Izmir in Turkey. People in Selcuk are really happy to live near the archaeological sites and their hotels and small pensions in and around the town are well adapted to their surroundings.

Selcuk is one of the most important historical, cultural and touristic capitals of Turkey. Selcuk town is an important centre of the world in terms of religion as well. Selcuk is loaded with history and visited mostly because of its nearness to the ruins of the Ephesus. Apart from tourism, agriculture is another subsistence source in the town and main product is peach. Selcuk is famous with the festivals arranged in every year for peach, camels’ wrestling etc. Also mass at the House of Virgin Mary is held every year at 15th of August nearby Selcuk.

Over the hill a beautiful castle and the Byzantine Church of St John's ruins are seen together truly romantic. Aqueducts are other important ruins remained from Byzantine era in picturesque town Selcuk. If you visit Selcuk in summer time you can see storks’ nests at the peak parts of ruins such as minaret of Isa Bey Mosque, Pillar of the Temple of Artemis, Byzantine aqueducts etc. The small Ephesus Museum has one of the best collections of Greek and Roman artifacts found in and around Ephesus.

When you visit this little town, it offers you all those beauties. You have a chance to see one of the seven wonders of the ancient world which is “The temple of Artemis” on the way of Selcuk from Kusadasi. Many people visit Selcuk as a gate way to see the Greco Roman ruins in “Ephesus” and “Ephesus museum” which houses many artifacts from Ephesus. At the archaeological site of Ephesus, a well-paved road leads to the “Cave of the Seven Sleepers” about an half mile away. Cave is fenced off, but a large hole in the fence currently provides full access to the cave?. On the way of Selcuk from Izmir beautiful “Byzantine fortress” nearby “the tomb and also the “church of St John the Apostle” welcomes you in Selcuk. When you take a stroll on some streets you can easily find the “Isa Bey Mosque” which is the oldest and the biggest one in Selcuk and it is still in use.
