Phygale Ruins Kusadasi

Phygale Ruins Kusadasi
Phygale is known as the oldest settlement in the area and is 3km north of Kusadasi . There are two schools of thought as to how it originated; the first from archaeologists that say the town was established by the Lelegians who moved here from Central Anatolia. The other is from the famous historian Strabon who stated that the King of Argos, Agamemnon, established it as a place of safety to heal his wounded soldiers and repair boats damaged during the Trojan War, and that the city gained its name after a disease that affected the Kings army.


Strabon also mentions that there was a temple here dedicated to Mumkia who was the Goddess of the Moon. Recent excavations have uncovered many ceramics that are displayed at the Aydin Museum and there are some visible remains of houses, walls, foundations and the harbour although the area has not yet been fully excavated.

How to get to Phygale

It is 3km north of Kusadasi on the cape that is behind the Hotel Pigale and the Sehirici dolmuş minibus goes through the site every 3 minutes.
