Aspendos (Belkıs)
After passing Serik on the Antalya - Alanya highway, you turn north and continue for 4 km. Aspendos dates back to the 5th century B.C. The theatre, which was built in the 2nd century A.D. was periodically repaired by the Seljuks who used it as a caravanserai.

It is one of the best preserved theatres to be found today. Allowing 0.50 m per seat, the theatre holds 17000 spectators, with an additional for 500 in the orchestra.

Today it is used for concerts, festivals and grease wrestling events. In addition to the theatre the agora, basilica, nymphaeum and 15 km of aqueducts are to be seen.

The pressured aqueduct system is a feat of engineering from the Roman period.
