Pergamum-Was an ancient Greek city in Aeolis. Today, the main sites of ancient Pergamum are to the north and west of the modern city of Bergama.
Acropolis of Pergamum is divided into two sections:
Upper Acropolis, including the Temple of Demeter, Sanctuary of Hera, House of Attalus, Lower Agora and Gate of Eumenes.
Library-Built by Eumenes II and situated at the northern end of the Acropolis, it became one of the most important libraries in the ancient world. The library once held 200 000 books.
Temple of Trayan-One of the most spectacular structures in Pergamum’s Upper Acropolis area. The construction of the temple was initiated under the Roman Emperor Trayan and completed by his successor Hadrian. The purpose of the temple was to provide a venue for the religious cult of both rulers as well as Zeus.
Red Basilica-Also called The Red Hall and Red Courtyard are monumental ruined temples, built by the Roman Empire. The temple is thought to have been used for the worship of the Egyptian Gods-specifically Isis or Serapis.
