The Pisidia Heritage Trail

The Pisidia Heritage Trail is a 350km archaeology-themed hiking route that connects 12 ancient cities in Southwest Turkey along the magnificent Taurus Mountains.

Connecting three major archaeological sites of Pisidia – Termessos in the west, Sagalassos in the north and Selge in the east – the trail almost forms a triangle on the map. Most of the sites along the trail were surveyed by archaeologists affiliated with the British Institute at Ankara. The trail is designed to attract hikers, nature lovers and adventurers in general, as well as to increase economic benefits for the communities who live by these ruins.
