|Aqueduto chegando à cidade.|
We hired a car and as soon as we rose from the plain it started to rain. The entrance was clearly marked and then the real drive began, 7km of winding narrow road and finally you come out into a parking area and some toppled columns and a small temple tell you you have arrived. There begins about a half hour walk to the city proper.
Antalya had been pretty warm but I was already shivering here and it rained off and on. The ascent was not that steep but every now and again lower buildings in ruins could be made out in the bushes and trees. Cloud too rolled in covering the views and then rolled back again. Much better that way, though because once in the city there is little shade. The photographs speak for themselves, of all the classical ruins I came to see Termessos was the one most difficult to build a picture of. It spreads out over the mountain, there is almost no information or map of the place, so you have to try and piece it together yourself. The amphitheatre is the jewel though, with the valley falling away behind it, breathtaking.
