Where the Aegean and the Mediterranean meet: Knidos


Reminding that Knidos is located in the southwest of Anatolia at the intersection of the Aegean and the Mediterranean, Doksanaltı gave the following information:

“Knidos is one of the cities that got rich in a short time by using this location and used this wealth for art and culture. Both archaeological excavations and historical sources show that Knidos was inhabited since the 2nd millennium BC. The finds unearthed in our excavations confirm this.

The city made its name known especially as a culture and science center in ancient times, and it became a geography where doctors known in the ancient world, which we call the ‘Knidos School of Medicine’, were trained. We can say that this is an important center with the data obtained not only in the field of medicine, but also in the field of astronomy and law.
