Alinda Ruins Didim
Alinda Ruins TodayParts of the city walls and some towers are still in good order and the huge Hellenistic Market Building, approximately 100m in length, originally with three storeys, two of which still stand today are in almost perfect condition. The agora, 30 meters square, was surrounded by a colonnade of which only a few columns remain. The early 2nd century BC theatre, almost as well preserved as the market building has retained two galleries and most of its seats and gives outstanding views over Karpuzlu and the valley below. At the top of the hill is an imposing two-storey Hellenistic watch-tower with remains of cistern mouths and partly collapsed tunnels that once led to the lower levels of the city.
Other ruins include foundations of acropolis houses, large remains of an aqueduct and parts of Alinda’s wide spread necropolis. There’s not a great deal of accommodation to choose from or places to eat although Cine has a few pansiyons and Karpuzlu has several restaurants and one hotel.
