Trebenna Antik Kent

It was when I was looking through these photographs of Trebenna Antik Kent that I found the lost blog, the last one I published, the one about our long day on Geyiksivirsi, a trip we started from Trebenna Antik Kent.  I didn’t have any photos of the ruined city from that trip, but I found these ones (below) from the first time I visited Trebenna Antik Kent when I rode up from Antalya by bicycle.  I also once walked up from Kezban’s Guesthouse, but that was a foggy, rainy day, and I didn’t take any photos.

Trebenna Antik Kent is another old Roman city near Antalya.  The setting is nice — at the foot of Geyiksivirisi, above the climbing crags of Geyikbayırı.  The site gets few visitors because there’s not so much to see.

The closest climbing crag to Trebenna Antik Kent is named after the old city.  It’s quite a popular climbing area, in part because it’s almost always in the shade.  Many more people have climbed at Trebenna than have visited the old city.  I suppose the old city is now just a place for goats and turtles to hang out.
