    The Telmessos ancient amphitheater is a 2nd century AD is just down the marina area facing the marina quay. Grasses are growing in and around it, but rumors has it this theater will be restored. It's still a nice sight.

    Excavated in 1992 - 1995, originally the theater has 28 seating rows and can accommodate approximately 6,000 spectators. It was built during the late hellenistic period. It was abandoned in the 7th century during the arab invasion.

    There are several broken columns lying down at the bottom front side near the main road. And there's also a Lycian tomb just below on the roght side of the theater.

    I walked along the upper street above the theater and it surely commands a nice crawling view to them bay.

    The city was called Telmessus in the ancient times. These remainings from this period have only been excavated recently...
