Antalya Aspendos Ancient City amphitheater, historical site Aspendos Antalya, historical sites in Turkey, the best preserved ancient city, the best historical roman ancient theater, the cat in the ancient theater, the lonely cat in the historical ancient The theatre in Aspendos is considered to be the best-preserved theatre of antiquity. The Roman builders of this structure managed to express the state of ideal balance between the auditorium and the skene building and, what's more, the whole theatre matches perfectly into the landscape.

According to a legend, the construction of this theatre resulted from the competition organised by the ruler of Aspendos. The aim of this competition was to build a structure that will contribute most to the city's prosperity, and the winner was to be awarded the daughter of the ruler. Two competitors qualified to the final round. The first of them constructed the system of canals and aqueducts that supplied Aspendos with running water. The ruler was almost convinced to give him the hand of his daughter but decided to visit the theatre, built by the second competitor, for the last time. When he stood on the highest point of the theatre, suddenly a clear voice whispered directly into his ear: 'Your daughter must be mine!' When he looked around in surprise, he saw the builder of the theatre standing on the scene. The theatre's acoustics impressed the ruler so much that he immediately decided in favour of its builder. The wedding took place, naturally, in the theatre itself. Ancient Rome Stock Photo
