That's very true; you can just wander around what's left of the ruins, no fences or anything.  All that's left is basically a HUGE pillar and some tumbled stones, and it's very quiet, which is nice; but we also saw litter and animal poo all over the ground.  The site of Ephesus proper is different; there's tour groups and such coming through, and some areas are fenced off, but big areas of that site are just completely open for scrambling; it's not surprising that they've had issues with looting.

Here's a picture:

I wonder how She thinks about that.  It's surprising that the site is in such sorry shape given how other sites in the region are preserved.  More so that this is what's left of one of the Seven Wonders.

Either that pillar is HUGE or you are very tiny indeed Smiley

It's the pillar.  *g*  Seriously, it's ENORMOUS.  This is just ONE pillar; the whole temple must have been completely overwhelming.

Which may be the reason why it was one of the Seven Wonders.

Any particular reason why it's not fenced?  Seems odd to not protect a site like that.

And - does anyone ever try to climb the column? Wink
