Laodicea on the Lycus: last Church of Revelation and first-degree archaeological site
If you have seen pictures of Laodicea on the Lycus, they most likely contained lots of columns. The reason is obvious; they’re all over the site! Only at Perge did we see more columns and colonnaded streets, but Laodicea (or Laodikeia) probably deserves the second place. Other than at Perge, Laodicea is very much a work in progress. We wouldn’t call it a charming site, but an interesting one. What it lacks in charm, it makes up for in size and thought-provoking reconstruction works. After all, this was an important ancient city that fell into ruins after a series of devastating earthquakes. Today, Laodicea is being restored to its former glory, making it a fascinating place to visit. Turkey travelers interested in Biblical tours will be happy to learn that the last Church of Revelation was included in the restoration works, and is open to visitors. Take a tour with us in this post.
