Hidden in the depts of Selcuk are the remains of this part of an acquaduct. Storks build nests on them and it makes an interesting place to stop and watch the activity. There are several restaurants/coffee shops around it. We will go again.

You can see several pillars as you walk through the town. There are 2 larger groupings and a couple others. I love how they are easily accessible and add charm to the town!

The Romans and the Byzantines understood that a powerful civilization requires infrastructure. The engineering feat involved in getting water to gravity flow from its source to the heart of this strategic city is mind numbing. Remnants still stand, a monument to endeavor and perhaps cruelty.

These aquaducts sits somewhere in town and there are many restaurants nearby that you can admire it from day till night. We had to opportunity to do so.There were also what looked like herons building their nests, living on top of the aquaducts.
