Temple of Apollo, Side

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
Ruin Historic Site
Feel the enormous weight of history at the ancient ruins of Temple of Apollo on the Side peninsula. Dedicated the Greek god of light and sun, the temple has a counterpart dedicated to Athena, and both were constructed around the 2nd century CE. Take in a view of the harbor from here and appreciate the intricate detailing of the marble. While most of the temple lies in ruins, the remaining columns and foundation make it easy to imagine how this impressive temple would have once appeared.

  • Very interesting place- history jam packed well worth a visit - lovely sea views - plenty of places to eat and drink  more »
  • Definitely worth to see. Side has good "promenade" and it ends near Temple of Apollo. Fortunately not crowded.  more »
  • Came last year in the day. This year visited in the evening as wanted to see it lit up. Still an amazing ruin and the fact you can get close to it adds to the visit. Good photo opportunity  more »

  • Awesome place!!! They improved this nice area a lot in the last 20 years. Now it is possible to access almost everything. Really impressive. Very close is the ancient hospital with a good view to the ruins of the old town.
  • The nice view on the ancient places and on the Seaview. Visit it if you'll​ be in Side or near Manavgat.
  • Beautiful historic remains giving you an idea of the scale of the structures and their intricities.
  • Nice place. It is soo good to see sunset over there
  • Side is very beautiful and also cheap!
