Termessos is one of the best preserved of the ancient cities of Turkey. Termessos constitutes an unusual synthesis of a large number of rare plants and animal species, which are under protection in 'The Güllük Mountain (Termessos) National Park'. Concealed by a multitude of wild plants and bounded by dense pine forests, the site, with its peaceful and untouched appearance, has a more distinct and impressive atmosphere than other ancient cities. Because of its natural and historical riches, the city has been included in a National Park bearing its name.
