Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

About 2 miles from our villa in Turkey is Tlos which is an ancient ruin built incredibly high in the mountains…..how the people ever got up there without a car I just can’t imagine!!

These sarcophagi are a monument to the people who lived here…

    • Some of it is Roman, some pre roman and some post Roman. We went to Ephesus a couple of years ago…..also amazing. Also Have some macro photos of wildlife from Tlos which will feature soon! 🙂

  1. Absolutely gorgeous scenery there in Turkey. It does look like a steep climb, and a very rocky one too and I suppose if you did make the trek up there, you’d have to be very careful. I’m sure people back then were very fit, that would explain how they went up and down the slope everyday. Great photos.

Go on.....say something to me! You know you want to! Dot knows you want to too!
