Termessos Tours - Excursions, Trips to Termessos in Turkey
(Greek Τερμησσός) was a Pisidian city built at an
altitude of more than 1000 meters at the south-west
side of the mountain Solymos (modern day Güllük
Dağı) in the Taurus Mountains (modern day Antalya
province, Turkey). It lies 30 kilometres to the
north-west of Antalya. It was founded on a natural
platform on top of Güllük Dağı, soaring to a height
of 1.665 metres from among the surrounding
travertine mountains of Antalya, which average only
200 metres above sea level.
Termesos is one of the best preserved of the ancient cities of Turkey..
The dream place where you will have an unforgettable vacation.
Termessos constitutes an unusual synthesis of a large number of rare plants and animal species, which are under protection in the Termessos National Park. Concealed by a multitude of wild plants and bounded by dense pine forests, the site, with its peaceful and untouched appearance, has a more distinct and impressive atmosphere than other ancient cities. Because of its natural and historical riches, the city has been included in a National Park bearing its name.
Termessos was obviously not a port city, but its
lands stretched south-east all the way to the Gulf
of Attaleia (Antalya). Because the city possessed
this link to the sea it was taken by the Ptolemies.
The end of Termessos came when its aqueduct was crushed in an earthquake, destroying the water supply to the city. It was abandoned in (year unknown) - a fact that does much to account for its remarkable state of preservation today.
