The impregnable city, destroyed by the forces of nature, which has been in oblivion for hundreds of years, attracts thousands of travelers from all over the world.
Termessos, the ancient city, according to legend founded by Bellerophon (the one who defeated the Chimera on Yanartash mountain), is located in the southeast of Turkey. It is famous for the history of battles taking place at its unbreakable walls. The city was repeatedly besieged, but it did not surrender to the enemies and remained indestructible. Even Alexander of Macedon tried to capture the city, but after long months of siege he retreated.
