THE HISTORY OF GÜMÜŞLÜK
Three kilometers away was the ancient city of Myndos dating back to the 5th century BC. There are still remains of the 9’ wide wall (which was 3.5 km long and can still be followed for its whole length). and the famed big gates of Myndos. And for you history buffs, the town defended itself against Alexander the Great and Myndos sheltered the fleet of Cassius following the murdering of Julius Caesar and was punished by Mark Anthony.
