The House is a few miles from the ancient city of Ephesus and supposedly was picked for security. It sits on top of a hillside and is well kept. Part of the house was rebuilt in the same style as the original part that was left. You can almost feel the ancient life unfold as you walk the grounds and visit the house. No photos are allowed inside but it is an inspiring walk through the House that Mary lived in for a time. There is no fee but they take donations for upkeep of the grounds. Restroom facilities are available and are free. A restaurant and shops are also on the grounds.
