In the late afternoon, we went to Myndos Gate. This western city gate was built by Mausolus in 364 B.C. and was the scene for one of the greatest bloodiest battles during the siege of Alexander the Great. The site is currently under restoration, but unlike in the states, you can still walk around and take a looksy....and even walk up into the tower on the right!
Below is the back side of the tower...and a washed out picture looking into the sun...Oya after we climbed up.
There are several ancient graves near the gate, of which this double grave has an intricate mosiac in front of it.
In the evening, we came back to Oya's mom's house....ate MORE food...drank tea...and headed back to the house to prepare our packs for the hike.
