Description

The ruins of the ancient Apollo temple can be witnessed towards the end of the peninsula of Side, directly on its coast. It has origins that date back as far as the 2nd century BC to the time of the Romans and is one of the two major temples of the ancient Roman city. Five columns of the ancient temple are left standing at present and the size and height of the columns itself give an idea of how huge the original temple would have been back in the day. The area is especially scenic during sunset, when the russet red skies and glittery waters of the beach form the perfect backdrop to marvel this fascinating piece of ancient history. Several other Roman ruins are also located in the vicinity of the Apollo Temple and are worth taking a look at.
