Photographer's Note

The earthquake damage can clearly be seen here. After the 650 AD earthquake and increasing incursions by Arabs, the ancient Greco / Roman city of Sagalassos was abandoned. People moved down into the valley. There are a few tourists scrambling up the hill.

This is the view that awaits them.
