Selcuk, Western Turkey, July 2011. The Basilica of St John overlooks the town of Selcuk. St John is has visited Ephesus twice: once with the Virgin Mary, and later in AD 95 when he wrote his gospel on Ayasuluk Hill. A 4th-century tomb was believed to house his remains, so in the 6th century Emperor Justinian built the Basilica of St John on top of it. The Turkish Aegean coastline is littered with historical sites dating back to the Greek classical era. Photo by Frits Meyst/Adventure4ever.com.
