Assos or Behramkale

Assos or Behramkale
Assos is in the province of Ayvacik and hosts national and foreign tourists all year round.

Ruins at Assos 

The Acropolis is 238m high from sea level and was built at the same time as the Athena Temple in the 6th century BC. The Doric temple, although always protected by the Biga Peninsula and the Edremit Gulf, has been fully restored to its former glory.

Visit in the early morning and watch the sun slowly rise up over the upper part of the city or stay later and watch the moon light glimmer over the temple ruins, and you realise why Assos is one of the most popular of tourist attractions.

There are also agoras, a theatre and a gymnasium that stretch down from the hills to the sea. Sultan Murat I built a bridge, castle and a mosque here in the 14th century and these can be seen on the northern border of the Acropolis. On the lower side is a small and very charming port.

Chryse Ancient City

The historical city of Chryse is 25km west of Assos in Gülpınar village and has the Apollo Smintheus Temple that was built in the 2nd century BC. 15km west of Gülpınar and on an unmarked road with jagged rocks will lead you to Babakale which has charming village houses sitting on a steep hill that drops down to the sea.
