THE ANCIENT CITY OF ANTIOCHEIA AD CRAGUM



Located 60 kilometres east of Alanya. It was discovered in the region known as Mountainous Cilicia, during the ancient times and at the coast of Mediterranean, as a town settlement built on three hills. It derives its name from Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the King of Kommagene (Seleucid Empire), who lived during the 1st century AD. A large public bath, an oracle, a church and the council house are the most notable structures of the ancient city. In addition, the beach known as the porous sea here between hilly rocks is a natural pool.
