  • The Heracles Gate was once the southern entrance to the main city Avenue - the Curetes. However, over the ages only two beautifully carved columns remained. There's no chance to miss it as they stand....  more »
  • Maybe once it was a monumental, beautiful gate. Unfortunately, today only a few rectangular marble columns with a few figures carved on them remain. Nothing really impressive.  more »

  • An amazing historical site. Take not of the wonderful mosaic flooring. The views of Celsus Library from here is also fantastic
  • Historical site which is a must visit place! Come and feast your eyes with the beauty of the once magnificent city! There is another entrance which needs another fee to see the historical daily use of stuff. I would have loved to go but due to time constraint following a tour group, i couldn't go😭
