Selcuk (Ephesus) Basilica of St. John

The Basilica sits on a hill top overlooking present day Selcuk. If it had survived to present day it would be one of the largest churches in the world.  It was built in this location on the traditional site of John's grave.  According to local history, John wrote his Gospel on this hill.

The grave of the apostle John.
