This is must seen place. You will travel go back when you visit this area. You need to spend minimum 3 4 hours to see all part of the city.

It is a very interesting complex once attached my a covered walkway to the acropolas above. Great ruins, underground corridors, sprawling complex full of surprises at every turn. A must see if you are visiting Pergamon.

The Akroplis is the must-see in Bergama - but a visit to the Asklepion is still very recommended. The views of the Akropolis are best from the Asklepion. We were tired at the end of the day, but we spent a short hour here. It...More

Good place to take a trick photograph in the underground tunnel. Ruins are interesting. Fountain water has warm water coming out of it.

On surface, it may be just a ruin, but it has a long history of being an ancient health centre. See what ancient people do here: there is an incubation room, treatment building, a sacred fountain that still has fresh spring water running out, a...More
