Temple of Apollo, Side

Feel the enormous weight of history at the ancient ruins of Temple of Apollo on the Side peninsula. Dedicated the Greek god of light and sun, the temple has a counterpart dedicated to Athena, and both were constructed around the 2nd century CE. Take in a view of the harbor from here and appreciate the intricate detailing of the marble. While most of the temple lies in ruins, the remaining columns and foundation make it easy to imagine how this impressive temple would have once appeared.

  • At the port of side, at the end of the peninsula, stands the Temple of Apollo, at least its vestiges. The vestiges include beautiful columns that you can see on all the postcards illustrated in side, free entry, you can walk freely...

  • Amazing ruins. Situated all around the harbour area, free access to all but the amphitheatre and museum. Still plenty to witness with many of the ruins by the roadside . A good way to spend half a day...  more »

  • This is a very beautiful ancient tourist site. It has an advantage of been located by the Mediterranean sea with beautiful beaches that will make your summer stay enjoyable. The area also have nice and beautiful five stars hotels. Give it a visit anytime you are in Antalya Turkey.
  • What an amazing place of old city ruins. Beautiful location where you can freely wander round for hours on end but has become more commercial with increasing housing and shops.
