Sagalassos, ancient 'first city of Pisidia'

I went to Sagalassos in 2012 and found it a treat. There seems to be great potential in developing it into a second Ephesus, but personally I liked it a lot without fellow tourists. Well, I think I saw a handful, but that was it. There is a fine site by the Belgian team doing the excavating, my taxi driver worked seasons there and showed me fine pictures of “his” professor and her fellows, as well as him helping in the unearthing of a part I had just taken a picture of. I felt an urge to copy information from that Belgian site (which is in English too), but instead I think I should refer you to them, there is more information than I give.

The Wikipedia has this to say (and more): “Sagalassos (Ancient Greek: Σαγαλασσός) is an archaeological site in southwestern Turkey, about 30 km from Burdur and Isparta. The ancient ruins of Sagalassos are 7 km from Ağlasun in the province of Burdur, on Mount Akdağ, in the Western Toros mountain range, at an altitude of 1450-1700 metres. In Roman Imperial times, the town was known as the 'first city of Pisidia', a region in the western Taurus mountains, currently known as the Turkish Lakes Region. Already during the Hellenistic period, it had been one of the major Pisidian towns.”

At Burdur's museum many original statues are displayed that you will see modern copies of in some pictures here.

Some captions need adding. I need a rest.
