The Turquoise Coast Sights


  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 11/21/2013

Fodor's Review

On the western outskirts of Mersin are the ruins of ancient Soli, or Viranşehir. Roman general Pompey the Great settled reformable pirates here. There is a long row of Corinthian columns, part of an ancient colonnaded street; look for the human and animal figures carved into the capitals. To find the ruins, look for a small sign marking the turnoff to the right as you're heading east to Mersin, just after the Soli Shopping Mall.
