Perge Hellenistic Towers

Perge Towers

Prota provided restitution, restoration and retrofitting designs for the stadium and Hellenistic Towers

An important city of ancient Pamphylian, Perge (18km from Antalya) was originally settled by the Hittites around 1500 B.C.

The Hellenistic towers, Perge’s most significant structure, is one of the remaining pre-Roman structures . Dating to the 3rd century BC, this gate, consisting of two towers with a horse-shoe shaped court behind them, was clearly designed according to the defensive strategy of the day.
Restoration of the gigantic towers began in 2002 by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Within the scope of the restoration project, Prota provided damage assessment, seismic assessment, in-situ drawings, restitution and restoration and retrofitting designs for the Hellenistic Towers in Perge antique site.
