Bayır Village (Syrna)

Bayır Village (Syrna)Bayır in the heart of Bozburun peninsula, is a mountain village away from the sea, surrounded by pine forests. It was half-way on the Bozburun-Söğüt-Marmaris road and was a steady stop for buses and cars before. But after the bus route has changed it is now a favorite stop for jeep safaris. The plane tree in the center of town is said to be over 2000 years old. It is recommended that you stop here and have a coffe, tea or ayran or food if you like under this ancient tree. The ice cold spring water that runs constantly will freshen you up in a hot summer day.

Bayır is said to have founded on the antique town of Syrna. In its early days, it is believed to have a temple made in the name of the health god Asklepios. Nothing is left from the temple to this day. The acropolis of Syrna is situated on the Yancağız Hill 2 kilometers northwest of the village. It is a half an hour walk to the acropolis from the center of Bayır. Part of city walls, tomb stones and remains of dwellings can be seen.
