Lake District

The very ruinous remnants of Adada, with its toppled masonry strewn across overgrown meadows and into the surrounding forest, has a still visible agora and Trajan's temple. The Roman road here is part of the St Paul Trail. The ruins are about 12km north, up a winding mountain road, from the village of Sütçüler.
