Basically a lot of tombs and graves some in better condition than others. It is worth the walk to go and see them if you have time.

I have never seen a cemetery like this. I was here in March and it was a pleasant walk from the entrance to the thermal pools. The tombs are of all different shapes and sizes. The hillsides were ablaze with flowers. A very peaceful experience.

I have visited Hieropolis a number of times now and it never disappoints. The Necropolis is fascinating and interesting. The tombs are so well preserved although some are upside down due to the massive earthquake which destroyed the city. Well worth a visit!

This is a great piece of the ruins and are pretty well kept making for a fun place to explore while inside the park.

Out on the North end where the best preserved buildings stand it is quiet. It wasn't crowded at all. And beyond that, the cemetery outside of town, including along the hillsides it was almost deserted. There are some very spectacular tombs and compounds from the...More
