“Walk through history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We walked through what is left of Heracles Gate, with the Arch gone, you have to have some imagination as to what it must have been. Well worth taking a photo.

“Georgous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Absolutely a great spot to take a great photo of what use to be the gate leading you to the library. Beautiful architecture again and so amazing that this is still standing!

“Gate of Heracles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

If you visit Ephesus you will walk through the Gate of Heracles. Be sure to have your photo made. There is a professional photographer who takes pictures if you want that done. Hard to believe so many people passed through Ephesus and that there was a world famous library there.
