How about ancient history in Antalya?
Toros mountains Enjoying a privileged geographical position, the coastal area is protected from the North winds by the mountains ensuring the highest average temperatures in Turkey. While along its rugged eastern part rocky projections of land penetrate the sea, the western area is milder and sandier with large beaches and hotels making it one of the most developed areas of Turkey due to its demographic and tourist appeal.
King Attalus II of Pergamon is looked on as founder of the city in about 150 BC, during the Hellenistic period. It was named Attaleia or Attalia in his honour. The city served as a naval base for Attalus’s powerful fleet. Excavations in 2008, in the Doğu Garajı plot, uncovered remains dating to the 3rd century BC, suggesting that Attalea was a rebuilding and expansion of an earlier town.
