Ephesus Pamukkale Travertines House of Virgin Mary Cultural Tour ANCIENT AEGEAN
Just dream of a region… On the one side there is the Aegean Sea and on the other side there are mountains and fertile plains reaching into the core of Anatolia. This is exactly why the peoples of the ancient times did not want to give up on this region. Apollon, the god of the sun, fire and poetry in Anatolia, stepped on these lands and illuminated the opposite coast of the Aegean. The peoples of the Ancient Aegean expressed their gratitude to the soil and the sun by building spectacular cities. They always had olive oil in one hand and wine pots in the other. Centuries passed into millennia, and the light of Apollon has never died away.
