This Sunday 20th May 2012 at 10 o’clock the recently renovated Patara Lycian Parliament building will be officially opened by the President of the Turkish Great National Assembly and the Culture and Tourism Minister of Turkey.
Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy this unique event.
The building is widely regarded as the seat of the world’s first democratic parliament which was used by the Americans as a model for their democratic model.
The restoration of the Parliament building has featured on Fethiye Times a few times during its two year 7.5 miliion TL restoration project so it is great to see the project reach a successful completion.
There is also a section inside the building that features information boards all about the history of the site and the building.
