Labranda Ancient Ruins

Labranda Ancient Ruins
This is one of the best preserved ancient cities in all Turkey and is located 14km north of Milas on the Kocayayla (High Plateau). The dirt road that leads there is very rough and dusty but well worth the effort as you will find this wonderful ancient city sitting among pine and plane trees that has a constant sweet smelling breeze keeping it cool.  

Labranda Ruins Today

It is known that there was a sacred area in the city during the 5th century BC and an 8 metre wide sacred road that linked Labranda to Mylasa, parts which are still visible today and its south and southeast gates are still standing.
 Other remains include a Temple of Zeus with a large terraced area to its south, a stoa, an andron (where cults ate their meals) and a large building thought to have been a palace and a terrace of houses. The excavated Andron Window building is proof that windows were used during the Hellenistic era and there are also works dating to the Roman period.  
The stadium is 200m east of the sacred area which was reinforced at the back by a retaining wall and it is believed that races were staged here as there are stone markers indicating the starting and finishing points; the races would have been held during an annual 5 day long feast taking place in the sacred area.

Eating around Labranda 

Visitors can stop at the restaurant in the village of Kargicak to dine on the “Oglak Kavurma” a sautéed goat meat dish or try the “Menemen” which is a delicious omelette made with tomatoes and peppers.
