PERGE--According to the geographer Strabon, Perge has been founded by Akhas who came down here after the Trojan wars.
Perge was first mentioned in 334 BC when Alexander the Great passed through here. In the following years, Perge went under
the control of Pergamon when the Kingdom of Pergamon became a part of the Roman city. Especially in the first and the
second centuries BC, Perge became one of the richest towns in Pamphylia. Therefore it is not a surprising that St. Paul started
his campaign in Anatolia from Perge in 46 AD. The people of Perge loved and respected their Artemis to such an extent that
Christianity had to wait for another 400 years to enter here. In the Byzantine period, Perge was the seat of the bishop.
Even though Arabs raided Perge in the 7th century AD, when Seljuk Turks settled the area, records show the existence of an older
race living here. After the tour, we depart for Aspendos. Lunch break on the way.
ASPENDOS- The eastern land of Antalya was called Pamphylia in ancient times. The Toros Daglari (Taurus Mountains) forms a
beautiful back drop to the fertile coast, rich with fields of cotton and vegetables. Aspendos (Belkis) lies 47 km east of Antalya in
the Pamphylian plain. In 486 BC, Greeks and Persians had a great battle here (Greeks won but they didn't stay for long). During the reign
of he Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-80 AD) Aspendos got its theatre, which is the best preserved of all. It was built by
Romans and maintained by Byzantines and Seljuk's. The ruins of the ancient city are extensive and include a stadium, an agora,
and a basilica. Overnight in Antalya.
