My title kind of says it all - the library facade is the centerpiece of your Ephesus experience, and the spot you'll likely get your pictures (along with every other tourist there). But when you're th...
When you think of Ephesus this is the one that comes to mind. It is great to see. It is just a facade to the library but still stunning. Get a guide or read a book about it’s history to understand and...
Just as Macau's Ruins of St. Paul's was the only remaining faade of St. Paul's Cathedral after a fire, the Celsus Library had a fire and caused most of the building to be destroyed. Now we can only see the facade of this library.
Moreover, this faade was actually restored later, but due to the success of this restoration project, the existing facade of the Celsus Library has been considered a very real historical building.
This is the landmark of the Library of Celsus, which is also the attraction of a large number of travel enthusiasts who like us to appreciate and explore a history that is not hidden: this year only allowed men to enter. The library, originally hidden inside a tunnel leading to the brothel, provides an excuse for men to return to the land they are really interested in. The wife also thought that her man could study tirelessly in the library for a whole day.
The size of the library was then the second largest in Asia Minor. It had a collection of 12,000 books, second only to the city of Bergama. The building faces the east, so the reading room can make the most of the morning light. The library has survived fires and earthquakes, and its front door is still standing. The most recent renovation was in 1970.
The four goddesses are clearly visible in the porch of the gate, behind the stone pillars, representing wisdom, destiny, learning, and virtue. Currently seen as a replica, the authenticity is hidden in the Vienna Museum in Austria.
Now the Ephesus, the glory scattered away, leaving only some broken walls and broken stones, the metropolitan style of the year can only be recorded in the literature. However, even if you are not interested in history and monuments, see the spectacular facade of the Celsus Library, and the gorgeous sculptures will also admire its beauty.
The Celsus Library is one of the few double-storey buildings in Ephesus. It is extraordinarily conspicuous in the ruins, and there is a closer relationship between the library and the brothel. It is said that the library There is a hidden underground passage connecting the brothel. Oh
This round theater is also a good relic left in the ancient city. It is also worth a visit.
Located in the ancient city of Ephesus, a world heritage site, it was a public building during the Roman Empire, when it was a large library. The entire wall building remains intact, the stone carving art is exquisite and gorgeous, the characters are lifelike and one of the attractions worth visiting. The
library was named after the father's name "Celsus" at the time of the Governor's then. After his death, the son built such a large library to commemorate his father. Built in 100-110 AD, it was actually built on the tomb of the deceased. The double-wall design provides insulation to prevent moisture from eroding books. The book with papyrus and parchment is about 12,000 volumes. It is the third largest library in the ancient world. From 1970 to 1978, the library re-decorated and repaired according to the original shape.
I am deeply attracted by its stone carving art, beautiful and gorgeous, the characters are lifelike, I think that when I read books in this artistic place, I must be very happy!
