Description:It's worth visting today for its situation, its well-preserved theater and bouleuterion (council chamber), and the remains of its grand Temple of Athena, a work of Pythius of Halicarnassus, the architect of the famed Mausoleum (see Bodrum). Other ruins abound, including a gymnasium, stadium and Byzantine church. It's an interesting place. Priene, 30 km south of Kusadasi, 35 km south of Selçuk (Ephesus), was among the first cities in the world to have its streets laid out on a grid plan, an idea that its planners borrowed from neighboring Miletus.
