WELCOME TO KUSADASI (Turkey)

Beautiful Sandy Beaches and over 300 days of sunshine a year….

No wonder Kusadasi has grown into one of Turkey’s major sea-resorts

The ancient ruins of the fortress and its gates are a reminder of the impact the Ottomans had on the city at the beginning of the 15th century.  These days, you’ll still see old houses in narrow streets alternated with more fashionable streets, such as the ‘Barlar Sokak’, the place to go to when you’re looking for restaurants and entertainment when the sun sets over the palm-lined boulevard of this harbour town.

The Pigeon Island (just off the coast) offers the ruins of a Byzantine castle (better known as the Pirate Castle) and some good views of the coastal town itself.  Originally, the island was named ‘Bird Island’ but when the Ottomans decided to name the city like that (Kusadasi means Bird Island), the island was renamed Pigeon Island.

Long Beach in Kusadasi is a firm favorite with holiday makers who come back each year

From Kusadasi, ferries leave to and for Italy or one of the Greek islands – there are daily ferries for Samos in summer.  But before you rush off, Kusadasi is also an excellent city from which to explore impressive historical sights including Miletos and Ephesus and the rock formations at Pamukkale.

 

For those holidaying by cruise ship, Kusadasi is a favourite port of call.  Whilst most will go off to the historical sights, some will prefer the local Bazaar.  Here haggling is the order of the day!  Whilst almost all traders will attempt to stop you, if something catches your eye, feel free to negotiate.   All part of the fun.

Ephesus, known as one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the world, was a large port and trading centre at the crossroads of important trade routes, such as the Kind road and the Silk road.  The amphitheatre is very good shape and every summer live concerts are allowed, in 1995 Diana Ross gave a live concert without a microphone.

 

Every year millions of visitors come to Ephesus for its marvellous and mystical atmosphere.  Huge granite columns are witnesses of the city’s former magnificence and many worth-seeing sites are surrounding it.  The Artemision, one of the Seven Wonders, the saint John’s church, the Cave of the Seven Sleepers, the shrine of Virgin Mary, the Mosque of Isabey and the archeological museum of Selcuk.

 

Kale Mosque  “The Fortress Mosque”, built by the vizier Okuz Mehmet Pasa in the 17th century, is the most impressive and monumental mosque in Kusadasi.  Constructed in the area of 1800m2, the mosque has a 550 person capacity.

 

Temple of Artemis.  From the opposite part of the Temple of Hadrian the interesting complex of the so-called “Houses on the slope” faces out onto Curetes Street.  These houses were inhabited by the most qualified and wealthy social class and for this reason they are also known as “houses of the rich” or “palaces on the slopes”.

 

Aphrodisias.  The latrina built in the first century A.D. are the public toilets of Ephesus.  The toilets were ranged side by side with no partition between them.  In the middle was a square pool.  the floor was paved with mosaics.

 

Didyma.  Along the Curetes Street, in a wonderful succession of ancient ruins, sculpted pillars decorated with sculptural figurations, we can see reconstruction on a reduced scale of one of the most remarkable Ephesian monuments.

 

Miletos.  In mythology, the Curetes were known as semi-deities. Later “Curetes” referred to a class of priests in Ephesus.

Many inscriptions about the Curetes were discovered in different locations in Ephesus, especially at the Prytaneion.
