• Sagalassos Ancient City
• Ariassos Ancient City
Sagalassos is one of the best-preserved ancient cities in Turkey. It is located in southwest Turkey, more than one hundred kilometers north of the coastal city of Antalya, part of province Burdur. Sagalassos was most important city of ancient Pisidia which includes Taurus Mountain and Mediterranean Sea to its south and Anatolian plateau to its north.
The most amazing found in the ancient city is the fountain of Antonine. The fountain was built between 161-180 AD, a time of Roman prosperity when Emperor Marcus Aurelius ruled. The excavation took place from 1993-1995. Repairs were started in 1998 and completed in 2000. The water is still running from this fountain. There are also well preserved buildings such as the state agora, fountains, theater, baths, heroon and temples that you will visit together with your guide.
The archaeological site of Sagalassos has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in 2009.
