Miletus Archaeological Site Miletus, Turkey

The coastal town of Miletus was one of the most important cities in Greek Asia Minor until its harbors silted up. The famous architect Isidore was born in Miletus, and St. Paul stopped here on his Third Missionary Journey. There are many well-preserved ruins to be seen at the site, including an impressive theater, a Temple of Apollo, and two agoras.
