"The Gates of Hercules" Hercules Gate Tip by lashr1999
Hercules Gate, Ephesus: 6 reviews and 14 photos
The Gates of Hercules are located at the beginning of Curetes Street. There are two centrally located columns that resemble the posts for gates. On these columns are reliefs of Hercules in lion skin. They show second century craftmanship. When walking though the gates we pushed the columns as we walked though. Our guide said to do this to see if we could feel the strength of Hercules. It did not work for anyone in our group.
Directions: top of Curetes street
