Datca Knidos theatre 1

Without comment I present a series of views over the excavation area. Since the city is (almost, there used to be a bridge) connected to another island two harbours were created. One of the two harbours ships of war, the other merchant shipping. The city had the usual buildings, a theatre et cetera. The Aphrodite temple was famous for its Praxitiles statue.

I always try to give the impression I visited a site alone, so quite some time is spent waiting for fellow tourists to leave the stage. Here I ran out of patience. It may be another reason why I often go North or East: the numbers of tourists dwindle rapidly.
