As you may have seen from my earlier posts, we recently took a couple of days away to one of our favourite areas, the Datça Peninsula (pronounced Dacha) on the Aegean coast of southwest Turkey.
In my first post (Exploring The Datça Coastline) I shared some beautiful photographs taken from around the coastline. In the last post (Datça – More Than Just Beaches) you were introduced to some of the less seen parts. But this post is all about Knidos.
Knidos is an ancient settlement and the ancient Greek city of Caria, part of the Dorian Hexapolis…. Well that’s what the blurb will tell you, but to us it’s just a quiet place of beauty and solitude, situated right at the very tip of the Datça Peninsula where the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas meet. With so many ancient sites in this part of the world, one can become a bit blasé almost about them; but Knidos is different to me, a place I never tire of visiting.
