Antalya, one of Turkey’s most important tourism centers, has a coastline of 640 kilometers. This region, which is flooded by local and foreign tourists every year, is a paradise with its fertile lands, waterfalls flowing with ice-cold water, ancient cities that have hosted many civilizations and breathtakingly beautiful nature.
It has been determined that people lived in and around Antalya, the apple of the eye of the Mediterranean coast, 40 thousand years ago. Antalya, which was dominated by many civilizations such as Hittite, Lycian, Persian and Roman in different periods, was called Pamphylia, which means “very fertile” in ancient times. In the 2nd century, after King Attalos II of Pergamon besieged Side and failed to take the city, a new city was established where the city center is today and it was called Attaleia. Over time, the name Attaleia became “Adalya” and finally “Antalya”.
