Halicarnassus. It was the cradle of
Herodotus, the “Father of History” and
Dionysos, author of a valuable volume of the History of Rome.
Halicarnassus was a famous city specialy because of the
“Mausoleum” of King Mausolus (350 B.C.), one of the
Seven Wonders of the World. But there is only one structure that survived from the Classical Era: the
Amphitheatre, for 13.000 people that, although one of the oldest theatres in
Anatolia, still hosts some shows and concerts. The
