The Aphrodisias archaeology site in southwestern Turkey has been included in UNESCO’s World Heritage List, eu.greekreporter.com notes in the following article:
Aphrodisias, named after Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love was a small ancient Greek city in the historic Caria cultural region of western Anatolia, in modern day Turkey.
The Temple of Aphrodite was a focal point of the town, but the character of the building was changed when it became a Christian basilica. The Aphrodisian sculptors became renowned and benefited from a plentiful supply of marble close at hand.
At the ancient site there is a wonderful amphitheater that must have been the setting for great performances of culture and arts.
There is also an ancient Greek stadium described as “the largest ancient stadium in the world and one of the best preserved.”
It is 270 meters long.
