The Terrace Houses of Ephesus are a collection of ancient Roman residential houses located in the ancient city of Ephesus in Turkey. The houses were built during the 1st century AD and were inhabited by wealthy families during the Roman period.
The Terrace Houses are known for their impressive architecture and beautiful interior decorations, including frescoes, mosaics, and intricate marble flooring. The houses also feature advanced heating and cooling systems, with underfloor heating and a water supply system that provided hot and cold water to the houses.
Today, visitors can explore the Terrace Houses and marvel at their preserved beauty and ancient craftsmanship. The houses have been restored to their former glory, with reconstructed walls and roofs, and are protected by a canopy to shield them from the elements.
Visitors can also see the well-preserved remains of the ancient city’s streets, buildings, and public squares, including the Library of Celsus, the Great Theatre, and the Temple of Artemis. The Terrace Houses are a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the wealthy and privileged during the Roman era, and are a must-see for anyone visiting Ephesus.
