The Telmessos Ancient Theater in the Aegean Fethiye is a undergoing restoration process which kicked off on Sept 20 at a ceremony.
Restoration has begun at southwestern province of Muğla’s Fethiye district to revive the ancient theater at Telmessos.
“While Turkey is reviving many of its ancient sites, [Telmessos] has been neglected,” said Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay, who spoke at the Sept. 20 ceremony marking the start to renovations at the site. “[The theater’s] stones have even been removed and carried to the port. Now we will begin to bring it back to life.”
