Red Hall of Pergamon

The so-called Red Hall dates back to the second century and used to house a sanctuary of Egyptian goddesses. In the early Byzantine period the brick- built central hall was refashioned into a three- aisled basilica with semicircular apse, galleries, and narthex. It probably served as the cathedral church.  One of its rotundas now functions as a mosque.
