Cedrae, Cleopatra or City Islands Marmaris
History of Cedrae or City IslandsThe ancient ruins of Cedrae, on the Island of Saray, date back to Hellenistic and Roman times, and what are known as the City Islands comprise of the Orta and Kucuk Islands, and today, on the east side of Saray, you can still easily see the rampart remains from distance.
The island’s name derives from a belief that Cleopatra swam with Mark Anthony in a small bay on the northwest side where he had shipped sand from North Africa, and analysis shows that this type of sand is only found in Egypt.
Historical Ruins at Cedrae IslandsThe ruins here include a well preserved amphitheatre, a Christian basilica built over the pedestals of an Apollo Temple that was dedicated to Dors, an agora on the west of the island that has inscriptions mentioning athletic competitions devoted to Apollo that had been organised there. There are also a necropolis and column reliefs on the island of Kucuk.
