Delikkemer (Roman Aqueduct)
Between Akbel & Gelemiş
ID: 
193

Impressive, fairly long (~200m) bridge / aqueduct located between Akbel and the Patara ruins. Built by the Romans to provide fresh water for Patara, it dates from approximately AD 55.

 

The builder’s of the aqueduct thoughtfully added a passageway cutting through the structure, side-to-side. The location of the marker for the aqueduct on our map shows where the passageway is located.

 

You’ll spot some broken-out sections of the aqueduct which are interesting to investigate. They’ll give you a great idea of how the aqueduct works and perhaps an appreciation for how difficult it must have been to build.

How You Can Help

Trail research is never actually done. Here’s some of what we’re looking for:
✅   More photos! Ideally with geo-location information in the metadata. In addition to using some photos on Trekopedia, we add them to our internal reference database which significantly helps us with trail research. The more photos, the better! If you are willing to share your collection with us, we’d be incredibly grateful. Let us know and we’ll arrange a transfer.

✅   Points of interest. Help us identify (and geo-locate) accommodations, attractions, restaurants, markets, trail waypoints, confusing or problematic junctions, difficult or hazardous places, water sources, and so on. 

✅   Tips & recommendations. Share your thoughts with other hikers.
In addition to the above, please see this article for information on more general ways you can help. Thanks!
