Sights

The spread-out ruins indicate the large size of Laodicea. Entering up Syria Street, the colonnaded main drag, look out for a 2nd-century temple, its columns built with travertine blocks, and a glass floor showing toppled pillars beneath. Also take in the stadium outlines and the remains of two theatres; upper-tier seats remain in the second. By the agora and baths lie ruins of the basilica church mentioned in the Book of Revelation, where Laodicea is listed as among the Seven Churches of Asia.
