Limyra December 2013 3943.jpg

This is one of a series of shots I took trying to climb up to the famed Heroon of Pericles. I knew it would be at about 213 meters from sea level, and when the only passable path that I found had led me up to 270 meters on my GPS I decided I'd overshot it. On my way down I found a ruined building, at about the right height, and when I later read that the 4th century BC heroon had been destroyed down to its base I thought I may have found it (but found it wanting in beauty). At any rate, the climb left me with a fine memory and some good shots of the surroundings. See my Antalya museum gallery for what's shown in the museum of the remains.

Of course the theatre is a landmark hard to miss.
