This whole archelogic site is so packed with history. The ancient city is impressive and although lots of good excavations have been done there is still so much more to be found.

We have seen it after visiting both old and new theatres. Good feeling to walk the way like ancient settlers many centuries ago. Must have been quite busy place compared with today...

Blink and you'll miss it, boy does it look amazing. Just shows what ancient civilizations could do that we nowadays struggle to copy.

One of the impressive monuments of Patara. Worth seeing, but like all the rest of the city, more work must be done there to reveal the story of Patara.
