Bodrum Telmissos Turkey

Telmissos is on the Bodrum-Turgutreis road, three kilometers behind Ortakent. The site is in the village of Gürece, two kilometers before the turnoff to Gümüşlük, with the hill where the remains are located north of the main road. You can see remains of the Hellenistic period, mainly the towers of the city walls. The historian Herodotus said that the Temple of Apollo was found here and that it became famous for its oracles. However, no traces of the temple have been preserved.
