Loryma Ruins Marmaris

Loryma Ruins Marmaris
This ancient city was an important centre in the 4th century BC as part of Rhodes cities and is located on Karaburun, near Taslica in Bozukkale.

Getting to Loryma Ruins

The ruins can be accessed by ferry from Bozukkale Harbour and then takes a one hour climb from there to reach them.  

Loryma in History

The small city of Loryma was established in the 7th century, was surrounded by a two sectioned wall that dates back to Archaic and Classical times. In the upper part of the city is the acropolis which also has a two sectioned wall, with three cisterns sitting above it, and the ruins at the base belong to a single building believed to have been a shelter in times of danger. The long and narrow harbour fort controlled the entrance into the gulf and the dwellings have been carefully built on terraces along the slope.


The sacred area of “Artemis Sotaria” is on the plane west of the city and the necropolis is on the west of the gulf beside the temple. On the plane south of the necropolis is the sacred area of Apollo, and also an altar to the Rhodes god Zeus Atabyrios. From data found here it indicates the city was under the control of Rhodes and was a strategic point for its defence. 
Three churches and many houses were built in the acropolis; it was also a naval base and armoury during Byzantine times that were built using older masonry materials from the area.  
Loryma was completely abandoned after the Arab invasion in the 7th century AD and in 1995 scientific research was commenced by German Archaeologist, Dr. Winferd Held.
