Assos Historic Site


 

 

Built in the 6th century BC, located in Canakkale province, Assos was famous in antiquity with its sarcophagi. The Temple of Athena, the only Doric structure in Anatolia, sits atop of a scenic hill in this ancient city where Aristotle lived for a while.

Archeological finds from the ruins can be seen both at the museum in the site and at the Canakkale Museum.
