  Near Temple of Athena with sweet Maria (2006)
by Pinat

Located in the village of Behramkale in Canakkale province, the ancient city of Assos is more than 200 meters above sea level. On the ancient city’s extension down to the coast there is a small modern town today, made up of restaurants, hotels and houses, all built of the local andesite stone. The very existence of Assos depends on that stone. There stands the Temple of Athena at the highest point of the ancient city with its splendid view.

What I love about Assos is the fact that it never disappoints you. On the contrary, it inspires one's imagination and gives one peace of mind. If you are truly stressed out, do try Assos for a relief!
