Termessos Ruins, Antalya

#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Antalya
Ruin · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Surrounded by dense pine forests and a multitude of wild plants, Termessos Ruins represents one of the best-preserved ancient cities in Turkey. Notable architectural structures of the city include the agora and the Roman theatre, which are joined by a large arched entrance. Look for the five small rooms under the stage where wild animals were kept before being taken into the arena. A king's road with wide porticoes winds within the city walls, and you'll see the remains of a gymnasium with an internal courtyard, an odeon, six temples of varying sizes, towers, Hadrian's gate, and the necropolis with hundreds of sarcophagi.

  • This place is a must. After walking upward for around 15 minutes you'll have a wonderful view, the site it's big. Both the ancient theater and the view from it are very impressive.
  • Beautiful views. Trail up is easy, half way is shaded by trees. Almost no wind thus hot and humid (less than 1km from parking). Must see.
