View of the Red Basilica and area from the acropolis of Pergamum. View looking south. The Red Basilica is in the center of the image. Note the large tower just before and to the left of it.

In the upper left portion of the image is a three-arched bridge over the Selinus River that actually flows under the courtyard of the Basilica. The water of the river is thought to represent the Nile and may have been used in rituals here at the complex.
