Part 11 of series:
Ancient Ephesus and the New Testament
How the Wealthy Lived in Ancient Ephesus
During my last visit to Ephesus, I had the opportunity to tour the so-called “Terrace Houses,” which are stacked in three terraces on Bulbul Mountain in the center of Ephesus. Centuries ago, they were buried by landslides that were likely caused by earthquakes. The Terrace Houses are currently being excavated, with the promise of many more similar excavations yet to come.
Here are some pictures I took of the Terrace Houses (except for the first photo, which I found on WikiCommons).
If you visit Ephesus, I recommend a tour of the Terrace Houses. This requires, I believe, reservations made in advance.
