Ruins in Selçuk
Celsus Library
(6)
The Celsus Library is in a square at the end of Cureto Way. It was built as a mausoleum for Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemeano. To avoid people's criticism in the middle of the city and it was turned it into a public library. The walls are doubled in thickness for the books inside and protect them from moisture. The thing that sticks out the most is that the facade has two floors and double Corinthian columns. In many of the niches there are replicas of sculptures, the originals are exhibited in the Ephesus Museum in Vienna.
Ruins in Selçuk
Augustus Gate
In front of the Celsus Library there's a spacious and bright place with a beautiful door. To its right is the Gate of Augustus. It's gigantic and well preserved, but it seems to be one of those places where the Romans used to go to the bathroom, even though it wasn't allowed. Graffiti can still be seen there today, cursing "those who pee here." White and stately, leading to large agora.
Ruins in Kemer
Ruins of Olympos
Despite its backpacker and hippie atmosphere, Olympus has an ancient history: Here, in the 2nd century BC, flourished Lycian city. There are not many traces of the old Olympus, but what is noteworthy because it is beautiful but because of its location. The ruins scattered along the path from the village to the beach and people are content to take a look from there. But if you venture into the woods for a few tracks, marked with tablets, although quite bad, you are in a magical world, where among a jungle of flowering laurels, figs and vines, are spectacular sarcophagi, statues, sculptures, and remains of a city that must have been wonderful.
