Knidos

Among the major settlements of the ancient times, Knidos is located at the edge of the Datça Peninsula which is a district of Muğla famous for its natural wonders. The city was once the center of art, architecture and science and is not only noted for its scientists but also for its Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
A seaside resort surrounded with ancient monuments, Knidos is home to many ruins like the Temple of Apollo and the round temples, sacred groves, the necropolis, the hillside houses and the largest graveside of the ancient times.
