This excursion gives you the possibility to see the waterfall "Manavgath" and the antique town of Aspendos.
The antique town of Aspendos had the destiny, much similar with the neighboring Perge. Founded by Acheian approximately at the same time, it consequently underwent frequent Persians' attacks, unsuccessful parley with Alexander the Great, rapid building under the Roman authority. Similar is also the geographical position of the two towns. Aspendos was connected with the sea by the navigable at those times river Eurymedon (today Koepryuchai), in the mouth of which in 469 ВС the battle between Greeks, headed by Kimon, and Persians took place. Already in the 5lh century ВС the town minted its own coins. In 190 ВС the town fell under the authority of Pergam, who in 129 ВС brought Aspendos to ruin, having taken out of it all the statues and other values. Famous philosopher Diodore lived here.
