Bafa Lake

Stunning scenery and ruins - lots of history attached to the area well worth a visit.


Bafa Lake is surrounded by the Latmos Mountains. Located at the beginning of the Latmos Bay, Heraclia was named Latmus at its head, reaching the height of 1300 meters above sea level, taking the name of the impressive mountain. 

At the beginning of the Gulf, Heraklia became an important city away from the popular trade route from Ephesus to Didim - Miletus and Priene. This mystical mountain is the perfect area for avid hiking and trekking tours on a trip to Türkiye. 700 A.D exudes, and the monks’ left traces on these remote mountain slopes. Byzantine monasteries and marble caves are favourite tourist places for sightseeing on your Türkiye holiday. 

The village of Kapıkırı is built on the ruins of the ancient city of Heraklia, and today's houses are in many cases directly based on old foundations. Stones from the surrounding ruins were used to build new houses, walls, streets and property areas. Although Heraklia was found in Ionia, Heraklia was a characteristic Carian city, and its history was created by Caria events.
