Places of Interest in Turkey . . . PRIENE  
  General Information
130Km south of Izmir and 15Km from the town of Soke.
A terraced city halfway up a marble cliff, part of the Mykale mountains. Originally Priene, along with Miletos, Heraklia and Myus was one of a ring of Greek harbor towns around the Gulf of Latmia. Located on the Buyuk Mendere flood plain, the constant silting of the river has resulted in the sea receding several kilometers from these former ports. Priene is an early example of town planning under limiting conditions, and follows the colonial planning system of Hippodamos and Miletos.
