Ruins Of Myndos

The fortification wall is most impressive, being some nine feet thick at its widest point, with numerous watch towers along its length. Another wall, dating from the period of the Lelegian occupation of the peninsula can be seen beyond the double harbor point. Near the south end of this, on the coast, are the remains of a tower. A century ago many ruins were reported to be seen at Myndos including house foundations, a stadium and an amphitheater. These are no longer found at the site, presumably owing to the attack made on the ancient site by later builders In their acquisition of construction materials. A Roman basilica can be seen north of Gümüşlük, in the walled enclosure. What is thought to have been a church is located at the north corner of the city wall on top of the hill.
