Suggested Tours

Telmissos is on the Bodrum-Turgutreis road, three kilometers past Ortakent. The site is in the village of Gürece, which is two kilometers before the turn for Gümüşlük, with the hill where the remains are to be found to the north of the main road. You can see remains of the Hellenistic period, mainly the towers of the city's 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 survived.
