  • People don't know what they expect when visiting a place. For some, a place that has very nice for some, there's nothing two or three can be place in the ruins. If you are interested in the historic place must go. Follow the channel coast in Silifke can go 40 minutes, leaving the plateau you can see some of the old structures. While you're at 2-3 km from the ancient city of olba next to, but there's nothing in olba. Diocaesarea (uzuncaburc) a must for history lovers say, among the beautiful buildings left standing.

  • The Watchtower on the left before approaching the city attracts your attention ... (This is from the water tower with five towers each other. They are an attack from the sea through the city instantly iletiliyormuş.) Then, first of all, you ancient theatre on the left again. Theatre, in very good condition. Very unspoiled. You will admire. Then you want to go inside the gates of the city. This is the East Gate. (This is the same as the door there and in Berlin, Germany/name "Brandenburg Tor") On the right there is a little bit more and my Hama Rome Fountain hole, on the left ... "Temple of Zeus". A huge Temple and still in very good condition not that local stones of the columns, which drops about you "came from" is shipped to you. As we walked to the door of the West front of the North Gate draws your attention to our right, I think that's the best case North Gate ... Literally, I suggest a half-day for allocation.
