The most beautiful sides of this historical city are its seasons and the sundial, which shows the time. The great tourist attraction, The Temple of Aphrodite, lies here and do does The Temple of Apollon, which is situated on the highest point of Knidos and it is one of the most amazing historical places in the area.

Another sight to visit when you arrive in Datça is Eski Datça (Old Datça) which shows the typical architecture of the area with its beautiful old stone houses. Kizlan and its windmills has become a symbol for the region and there are the remains of some ceramic manufactures between Eski Datça and Hizirsah village - where you may find the restored mosque inherited from the Seljuks period - thought to have been working during the 4th Century BC.
