No need to be a pilgrim or even to have an adoration for Zeus to visit Labraunda. This hidden gem between Bodrum and Lake Bafa should be on your radar!
A visit to the Sanctuary of Zeus Labraundos: Labraunda
Did you know there is a piece of Carian history, (or in this case lots of pieces) built with white marble, hidden in the mountains near Milas? It’s called Labraunda (or Labranda, depending on the source) and it is home to the Sanctuary of Zeus Labraundos. Sounds impressive, doesn’t it? Well, it is! This solitary and sacred place was visited on foot by Carian pilgrims to honor Zeus during sacrificial feasts. The unique remains of the halls that served as a venue are still here. At no other ancient site in Turkey will you find such dining facilities.
