The ancient city of Bargylia was founded in the V century BC. It is located near Gulluk Bay on the northern coast of the Bodrum Peninsula. And now the city is put up for sale for $8,4 million.
In Bargylia, construction activities are prohibited, so even archeological excavations have not been carried out there. Therefore, a new owner of the site can enjoy the amphitheater view, the remnants of the Roman baths, as well as the necropolis of the Byzantine era.
However, archaeologists oppose transferring the city into private hands. They want this place, which is privately owned since 1927, to be bought out by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey to ensure its safety.
