    ... 1636, is one of the last examples of classical palace architecture.

    ... it was felt way back then that they were knowledgable of natural therapies ( living close to the ground) and their tunnels were the way to travel from life to death. Never know what story to believe!! When cured they would make donations to the centre.
    We could see Pergamon from this site. I still can't get my head around the construction from BC - Bob is fascinated -checking the aquaducts etc and marvelling they had pipes etc. How the huge columns were erected ...
