Uzuncaburç: A visual feast in winter

The ancient city of Uzuncaburç (Olba), one of the most notable tourism attractions in the southern province of Mersin, is a draw for visitors even in the winter months when it acquires an extra beauty under a blanket of snow.

Located 30 kilometers from the center of the Silifke, Uzuncaburç is home to columns, temples, churches and monumental tombs that are thousands of year old. The city is also known for its resemblance to the ancient city of Ephesus in İzmir, earning it the moniker of the “Mediterranean Ephesus.”

Silifke Tourism Association Chairman Ali Küçük said the ancient city hosted thousands of local and foreign guests every year.
