AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Contributor and drone pilot iskenderfilms created this beautiful aerial video of an important ancient ruins site in southern Turkey called Termessos. The city, which was part of the historical region of Psidia, sits in the Taurus Mountains, in the northern part of the province of Antalya. Termessos was famously one of the very few cities which Alexander tried to conquer (in 333 BC) but could not. Abandoned when an earthquake destroyed its aquaduct, it's one of Turkey's best-preserved ruins sites.
Description: Termessos (Greek Τερμησσός) was a Pisidian city built at an altitude of more than 1000 metres at the south-west side of the mountain Solymos (modern-day Güllük Dağı) in the Taurus Mountains (modern-day Antalya province, Turkey). It lies 30 kilometres to the north-west of Antalya. It was founded on a natural platform on top of Güllük Dağı, soaring to a height of 1,665 metres from among the surrounding travertine mountains of Antalya. Concealed by pine forests and with a peaceful and untouched appearance, the site has a more distinct and impressive atmosphere than many other ancient cities.
