Perge , worship of Artemis, Aspendos
Your professional guide will be at the PORT at the pre-arranged time to start the tour. Perge contains ruins that date back to 1000 BC. The theatre seated 14,000 and its ruins are in relatively good condition. Here, worship of Artemis was far more important than that of the male gods, and the dominant motif used in art and on coins was Artemis of Perge. See the Basilica of Perge, the 2nd-century stadium, the Roman Gate located on the outer wall, the Baths complex, and the Hellenistic Gate. A colonnaded street stretches from the gate to the Nymphaeum, and the agora (marketplace) is a small rectangle surrounded by shops.Aspendos, the major port city in the Roman period, was founded on a hilltop near the Eurymedon River and later spread down to the plain. Only parts of the city have been excavated but the Roman Theatre is the best preserved in the Mediterranean. Its capacity is estimated at 20,000 people. From a distance you will see the remains of a marketplace, a basilica, shops and a Nymphaeum. Water was brought to the city through a spectacular aqueduct of which four long sections are very well preserved.The end of the tour is back at the port.
