Other sites around Pergamum

Also in the vicinity of Pergamum are the “Red Basilica” and the Asclepion.

The giant 'Red Basilica' was originally a temple to Egyptian gods

 

Predictably turned into a church in the Byzantine era.

 

The Opaion, which used to be much bigger apparently

 

The Sacred Way to the Asklepeion (a sort of ancient medical facility)
