THE VIRGIN MARY HOUSE
Even if you're not that religious, pay a tribute to the one of biggest and most world spread religions - Chritianity. You'll see the proof of the one of the basic dogmas of Christianity.
It is a wonderful story and an awe inspiring place. You feel a certain serenity, even with the masses of tourists. The wall of prayers, the holy spring everything is very beautiful.
In the past people used to tie pieces of cloth with their wishes written on it around the trees by the house of St Mary. This caused injury to the trees, so they dedicated this wall for that purpose.
It is believed that St Mary lived her last days drinking the healing water of this fountain. Today it is still regarded as holy water and many claims have been made of cure by drinking this water.
Approx 9km from Ephesus on top of Panaya-Kapulu you will find the statue of St Mary. hundreds of pilgrims pass before this statue every year especially around Easter it gets very crowded.
