The House of the Virgin Mary -- Meryem Ana Evi

Most people are surprised when you tell them that according to one legend, the Virgin Mary, after the crucifixion, in the care of John, lived out the rest of her days in the hills above Ephesus, in what is now Turkey.

I mentioned the House of the Virgin Mary last December, when the Pope visited here. This summer I got to return for another visit. Below are some pictures of the restored first century home and the sign that gives a brief history of the site. Click on the picture of the sign for a larger view.
