Kadifekale Tours

Kadifekale
Kadifekale, also known as the Velvet Castle, presides over the town from its vantage point on top of a hill of the same name. Built by General Lysimachos, a successor of Alexander the Great, Kadifekale appears to have acted as both a castle and a fort, giving clear views over much of the city and across to the Gulf of Izmir.

Restoration work is underway, but travelers can see the castle gate, Roman cisterns, watch tower and some castle walls upon visiting. The views from the castle ramparts are not to be missed.

Practical Info

Beware of the hawkers that frequent the castle.

Address: Kadifekale, Izmir, Turkish Aegean Coast, Turkey

The Seven Churches of Revelation Tour

The Seven Churches of Revelation Tour

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet saying, ‘What thou seest, write in a book and send it to the seven churches: unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.’” —Rev. 1:10-11 (ASV). Well, Turkey is the home to all seven of the churches mentioned in the Book of Revelation, also known as the apocalypse, which was written by St. John the Apostle (also the author of the Gospel of John), who was exiled to the island of Patmos for his Christian faith. The Seven Churches are located in the geographic region of the Roman Empire known as the State of Asia. An optional overnight visit to the Island of Patmos, Greece, may be added to your tour if desired. Please contact us for pricing and details. We are here to offer you an immaculate spiritual experience in our holy region.
