Owner description: This monumental gate, a two-storey building with six columns on each floor, was constructed towards the end of the 4th century. Today, the arch and most of the building are missing. It is also known by the name Victory Arch of Hercules.

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!

Great spot for pictures, well preserved, go early before the tours. The statue of Athena Nike is great.

This is the division between the part of the street where the chariots had access to and the aristocratic pedestrian only way

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.

Mythology was always interesting when we studied it in school but to actually visit sites where they practiced it as a religion, is amazing.
