Aspendos

Aspendos is approximately 50 km east of Antalya. The feature most synonymous with Aspendos is its theatre, capable of fitting 15,000 people.


The theatre

Aspendos has the best preserved ancient theatre I’ve seen in Turkey and it is still used for performances in summer.

Both Aspendos’s theatre and the main area at Perge cost 10 YTL for foreigners and 3 YTL for Turks.

A few kilometres east of Aspendos lives the remains of a large aqueduct system.
