The Turquoise Coast Sights

Anemurium

Updated 11/21/2013

Fodor's Review

Five kilometers (3 miles) before Anamur is the marked turnoff to ancient Anemurium. The extensive ruins here—mostly dating from the late Roman/early Byzantine period—are built out of durable Roman concrete, which makes them better preserved but less picturesque than the average stone ruins. Beside the entrance is a bath building, once part of a gymnasium. Beyond this is a small well preserved theater or odeon, opposite which sit the scant remains of a

large theater. A second Roman bath building is easily the best preserved in the country, with even its great vaulted roof standing. Beside the road there are also numerous tombs, some with frescoes and mosaics. At the end of the road there's a pebbly beach, where you can take a dip when you've finished, but no showers or other facilities.
