Description:Miletus is known for its gigantic 25,000-seat Hellenistic theater, reconstructed by the Romans and perhaps the most impressive theater structure in Anatolia.
Milet is the central of the three ancient sites (Priene, Miletus and Didyma).
The city has a solid place in history. Thales of Miletus (6th-5th century BC), one of the Seven Sages of Greece, has been called "the founder of science," with especially great contributions in the fields of geometry and astronomy. It was in Miletus that St Paul met with the elders of the church of Ephesus (the Ephesians) before his final journey to Rome. Isidore of Miletus was one of the two men who changed the course of architecture with the design of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
