of pamukkale are stunning

Its easy to see the difference between the seats and the steps from down here

Image

poles went in here to cover the stadium with silk to keep the people out of the sun

Image

This is a field behind the stadium you can see a roman wall at the far end I think
the horses chariots and gladiators stayed here and I think Spartacus was 1 of them
