Last week's Fethiye photo - albeit a day late - was of Coldwater Springs from above, one of the many amazing, yet typical, Mediterranean views that reward those who make the effort to reach Ölüdeniz from Kayaköy on foot.
This Friday, we're right on time and we're back in the centre of Fethiye with a shot of the ancient Telmessos Theatre. As you can see in the photo, the poor old Telmessos Theatre is a tad neglected. These days, divided from Fethiye harbour by a main road, it's easy to walk or drive past this place and not even notice it.
Restoration draws nigh for a Fethiye landmark
The potential is there and the Telmessos Theatre has been used for concerts on occasion - we spent a very special evening there back in May of last year when we attended the presentation by Louis De Bernieres, author of best-selling novel, Birds Without Wings.
And, you may remember a post we did in April of last year about nanothechnology being used to assist in the restoration of the Dalyan and Fethiye rock tombs. In that post, we also mentioned that funds had been released for the restoration of Fethiye theatre. Well let's go out on a limb here. We've seen the belediye (council) advertising hoardings. They tell us that the new Fethiye town square is set for completion in the next few weeks (and that looks to be on track) and they also say that Telmessos theatre restoration is starting. It doesn't say when, but at least the writing is there for all to see...We're looking forward to it.
