Approximately 4 kms from Datca lies Old Datca or as locally called "Eski Datça". This was the traditional center of Datca. If you move around this place you would believe that you have traveled back in time and can see architecture which is centuries old.  Datca real estate possesses the old style houses which are still standing strong along the narrow streets of the village. Since the place is highly unexplored you would not find a luxe accommodation. The extreme of the peninsula has the remains of Cnidus which used to be a harbor town. During ancient times the ship stopped here for the favorable winds. Among the various ships that packed this harbor was the one which Paulus used to travel from Palestine to Rome. Various trade ports towards the south can still be identified; you can also see the remains of a market place, the town hall and a couple of theatres. The statue of the Aphrodite of Cnidus which brought in a lot of Roman visitors can also be seen.
