Neandrea ( Neandreia )

The view from Mount Çığrı is spectacular. The granite formations stand tall and proud across the plain of this ancient walled city of Neandrea. To the casual tourist this archaelogical site might not seem that impressive but dig a little deeper and you will appreciate why this is an important historical landmark.

The remaining defence walls are all that is left of what must have once been a large city. Tracing the route of the walls and what is left of them you begin to get an idea of the sheer scale of this place. Dating back to the 8th century B.C. granite would have been quarried out of the mountain.
