About this spot
Perge was one of the most important towns of ancient Pamphylia, and most of the ruins now visible are from the 2nd and 3rd centuries when the city flourished under Roman rule. Many ancient sites are just crumbled buildings and are quite small, but Perge just seems to keep going and going. Perge is divided into four districts by two main colonnaded streets that cross at the center of the city. One of these streets leads from the city gates to the foot of the Hellenistic acropolis hill. There is still a nicely preserved colonnade running along this street. The canals that supplied water to the fountains and baths run in the middle of both streets.
