Ephesus Tourist Traps: 12 reviews and 8 photos
You know my skepticism concerning history of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. In almost all my trips I try to escape this skepticism and avoid my grins when I see ‘ancient’ ruins or renovated Temples.
It’s very hard to do it when you watch such buildings like the Celsus library. It reminds paintings of Renaissance when people tried imagine how Greek or Roman cities had looked like.
When you go through the gates of the Celsus Library you’ll see quite a modern building from the back side which was constructed several tens years ago (have a look at Michael’s comment - when he came there first in 1978 he saw the crane of an Austrian company standing there for reconstructing the Celsus library).
Now you can see an inscription and learn about the Austrian reconstruction (the second pic). Have a look on my General tip where I wrote about the history of excavations.
Good job! “Made in Austria”, haha!
