Some 25 kilometers northwest of Antalya lies Termessos. It is near a peak of the Güllü Dağr Rose-colored Mountain, which measures 1067 meters. Most important sight is the theatre, from Hellenistic times but rebuilt in Roman times, keeping the Greek form. I overdid it a bit with pictures of it, but it is such a special spot I just kept going. The Bouleuterion still stands at about ten meters height, also dates from Hellenistic times and combines Dorian and Ionian characteristics. To its northwestern side is a stoa. The Tomb of Alcetas, one of Alexander the Great’s generals, killed here in 319 BC by Antigonus during the diadochen war (the war between generals formerly serving under Alexander) has been heavily damaged by grave robbers.

If you have transport it may be nice to visit nearby (well, twenty minutes or so) Karain Cave.

I so far failed to add captions but did take some new pictures during a December 2012 visit. With Map View you can identify the spot of most pictures. In doing so you'll notice how heavily overgrown the area generally is, so many monuments are only partly visible.
