Hidden in the depts of Selcuk are the remains of this part of an acquaduct. Storks build nests on them and it makes an interesting place to stop and watch the activity. There are several restaurants/coffee shops around it. We will go again.

You can see several pillars as you walk through the town. There are 2 larger groupings and a couple others. I love how they are easily accessible and add charm to the town!
