Welcome to Sagalassos

Sagalassos is one of the Mediterranean’s largest archaeological projects, but it is rarely troubled by tour buses or crowds; sometimes the visiting archaeologists or sheep wandering the slopes outnumber tourists. This is a place for getting perspective, for feeling the raw Anatolian wind on your face, and of course for seeing some very impressive ancient ruins. While you can rush through in about 90 minutes, take the time to linger and properly appreciate this mountaintop site.

Although repeatedly devastated by earthquakes, the ancient city was never pillaged, and reconstruction is slowly moving ahead.
