House of The Virgin Mary
House of Virgin Mary
When visiting Ephesus, stop by and see the House of Virgin Mary. This place is located 5 kilometers up a hill near Ephesus. This church dates back to the seventh century and is believed to be the last house that the Virgin Mary lived. In 1967, Pope John Paul II declared the House of Mary to be a pilgrimage for Christians. The room to the right of the Chapel was also used for a pilgrimage for the Muslims.
As you enter the site, you will be able to explore many different areas and read about the history of the house. There is also a wishing/prayer wall where you can write a prayer or intentions on a piece of paper or cloth and place it on the wall. While you are sitting there and looking around, you can also enjoy the beautiful view.
Visiting the Chapel welcomes a sense of peace. While you are there, you can pray and look around the chapel. The Chapel is still in its original state and is absolutely beautiful. The Chapel is not a huge but it offers you can idea of what it was like when Virgin Mary had experienced. On Sundays, they do offer mass at 10:30. After you exit the chapel, you will walk out to an area where you can light your prayer candles if you choose.
