Ephesus - Of all the cities mentioned in the New Testament that were visited by St. Paul, Ephesus is the only one that was also addressed in the Book of Revelation. According to Acts, St. Paul visited the city of Ephesus on both his second and third missionary

journeys. On his second journey his visit was brief. After engaging in a discussion in the synagogue, St. Paul left Ephesus, leaving Priscilla and Aquila in the city, and promised to return (Acts 18:18-20). Paul returned to Ephesus during his third journey.

This time he spent a considerable length of time in Ephesus. (Acts 19:8-10 says Paul spent two years teaching and preaching in the hall of Tyrannus in Ephesus, after having spent three months teaching in the synagogue there. Acts 20:31 says he spent three years in Ephesus.)

The Church of Virgin Mary - To the north of the Harbor Baths is the Church of Mary (The Council Church). The main entrance faces the Ephesus-Selcuk road. The church was built dedicated to Mary and is an important structure in the history of Christianity. It was also the site of a Council of Ephesus in 431 AD.
