Termessos

Termessos earlier was a Pisidian city built at an altitude of more than 1000 meters at the south-west side of the mountain Solymos  in the Taurus Mountains 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.

Termessos is one of the best preserved of the ancient cities of Turkey. The ancient city was founded by the Solims who lived in the Psidia Region. Although there are no facts available about Termessos and Solims, they are referenced by Homer in the Iliad in connection with the legend of Bellerophon.

 

Termessos constitutes an unusual synthesis of a large number of rare plants and animal species, which are under protection in 'The Güllük Mountain 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. Due to its natural and historical riches, the city has been included in a National Park bearing its name.
