Its history dating back to the 6th century BC, Assos is built on a dormant volcano of andesite rock, in the modern city of Canakkale.
Among many others, the famous ancient remains of Assos are the sarcophagi made of andesite rock, known for its hardness and durability.
The rich antique legacy of Assos, where the famous philosopher Aristotle once lived, includes a school of philosophy. The Temple of Athena, majestically sitting on top of a crag, is dedicated to the city’s protector and is significant for its Doric style, the only one in Anatolia.
