I just wonder how they waited so long to put that place on tenative list. It should have been there much, much earlier. Visited a long time ago (July, 1993).

One of best preserved ancient theatres in Turkey, mostly because it was later transferred to a medieval stronghold (similarly to those in Syrian Bosra). There are ancient ruins of a Greek town nearby (much worse preserved). Ideal half-a-day trip if you are based in Alanya.
