The ancient city of Antiochia ad Cragum was constructed primarily on sloping ground that descends from the Taurus range down to the sea. In spite of the fact that the city is coastal, its center lies several hundred meters above sea level and is protected on several sides by cliffs and steep slopes that offered protection from sea borne attack. The portion of the site where ancient architecture is still preserved, lies within the confines of the modern village of Güney and occupies a large territory, over 24 ha in area. The temple mound occupies the site's highest inhabited point and overlooks the city center.
