Didyma, Turkey Ruins: Photo Gallery

The guidebooks raved about the Medusa face carved into the stone ruins at Didyma and on our first trip overseas, I thought that it would be something truly spectacular (otherwise, why would they talk about it?). We felt pressure and stress about getting to Didyma in time to see that Medusa face. But though the ruins were located in a beautiful landscape, they looked a lot like all the other ruins we’d seen throughout Western Turkey. So we learned something about guidebooks. They tend to overstate things.
