Side

Side is an ancient Greek city on the southern Mediterranean coast in the province of Antalya. It was founded by Greek settlers from Cyme in Aeolis in the 7th century BC. There are colossal ruins of a theatre complex, the largest of Pamphylia, built much like a Roman Amphitheatre that relies on arches to support the sheer verticals.
