  • The gate of Heracleous is located on the upper part of Kourites Street. It signaled the passage to the center of the city of Ephesus. It was placed there in the 4th century, so as to narrow the road and prevent the passing of wheeled vehicles. Some of the pieces that were used date back to the 2nd century and must have been transported there during the construction of the gate in the 4th century, something that is confirmed by the fact that since then Kouriton Street was pedestriangated. Today only two pillars are preserved in the form of Hercules, who wears his famous lion. Initially, the House must have been two-storied and had six columns on each floor. Beautiful monument!

  • During the Roman period, this door was built on behalf of the God of Forces Herakles, narrowing the street a little, making it a pedestrian road. The statues and operations on the pillars are quite impressive. It adds a different air to the street.

  • Nice monument to see but the whole Ephesus archaeological monument needs care to be conserved! Manu groups of people coming around the world don't know how to treat marbles and behave like monkeys! Please treat Ephesus as it is your history although it's Greek's!
  • Great feelings! Thank you,Turkey for taking care of that Great spot!!
