Outside of Milas you follow a road up to the mountains which shows the country side of Turkey far away from crowds of tourists. Nearly on the top of the hill you come to Labranda ancient town of Kariya. The view down to the valley...More

After a mad drive up from Milas, encountering many quarry trucks on a fun road that is too small for them, we arrived at Labranda. What a place, met by the caretaker, who kind of said "fit your boots", we set off to explore. Incredible,...More

We have visited Labranda a few times over the years and always enjoy it. The road isn't great but it is a day trip out for us which makes it more appealing. The ruins are well documented and small enough to do your homework before...More

We have visited this place twice and still feel that it is worth another visit. Labranda is reached by traveling on the Izmir Road from Milas. You then take a right turn which is clearly signposted and travel up into the mountains. Labranda is quite...More

When I was going to write this review it surprised me that only two people had bothered to do so - I can only imagine the main reason for this is the difficult access to the ruins, on a narrow, twisty and partially unpaved road,...More

Labraunda was more than we expected....fascinating ruins restored by Swedish Archaeologists with pure air & tranquility. We spent a few happy hours wandering amongst the ruins, reading the information (in Turkish & English) and marvelling at the views and serenity of the place. Lots to...More

Labranda has ruins from both the Greek times as well as the Roman times, which have been very nicely restored by Swedish archaeologists. These are set high up on a hill, overlooking the beautiful valley below. You need to rent a car or get a...More
