Known as a site born again through archaeological restoration, this ancient village is located close to Pamukkale. Dating back from 3500 BC (the late Chalcolithic period) to 3000 BC (the early bronze age), the artefacts of Laodikeia are mesmerising.
The city was named after the wife of Seleucid king Antiochus II in the 3rd century BC. It was later ruled by the king of Pergamum and then seized under the Roman Empire. It was revived again in the 4th and 6h centuries and was also numbered among the seven churches of revelation.
Several earthquakes in the region have resulted into demolishment of the city many times in history, but it nevertheless entices the visitors.
