Most of the ruins at the site correspond to the Hellenistic period like the theater for example from 3rd c. BC with a capacity of 10.000 spectators. Another interesting spot is the temple of Trajan, the only Roman ruin at the site. It was erected...More

Impressive archaeological site located on the top of a hill. Ruins include Altar of Zeus & Hellenistic theatre. The 360 view of the city & landscape is definitely worth the visit.

As you walk in you get to see how well spotted the Palace was with 360 views for miles. The ruins sadly are mostly piles of old stone but the layout can be seen, and its worth the uphill hike. It gets a bit windy...More
