The Ancient city of Kaunos, Dalyan - Turkey

History dates these ancient ruins back to the 10th century BC. 

A city of ancient Caria, Antolia just outside of what is now Dalyan, Turkey. High up in the hills, this city overlooks the Dalyan river (Known at the time as the Calbys River) which acted as a natural border between Caria and Lycia which led through to Iztuzu and then into the sea.

It was a gruelling trek to the top of the hill above the amphitheatre ruins but the reward was a most staggering view of the town below…and a baby tortoise along the way made the journey easier.

A beautiful place to see…
