Mystical Places

Cult places, not well described, are scattered on the Latmos Mountains. The Latmos Mountains were everytime a mystical place. Near Bağırcık village and in Ekiztaş are menhirs with steps leading to the top. The location of Labranda in the same mountains emphasizes the importance of Latmos Mountains in the pre-Hellenistic era. Other evidence is that on a sarcophagus from Roman times is a figure of the Old Man of Mount Latmos; it is known that Romans integrated the gods of the cultures they oppressed. Later came christian monks and build their monasteries into the mountain. There are many interesting questions about past times to be answered in this region.
