    Marmarisin İngilizce Tanıtımı
    The magnificent coastline of the Turkish Riviera has attracted many conquerors in its time.

    Marmaris has been ruled by the Egyptians, Syrians, Romans, Byzantines and the Ottomans. Traces of all these civilizations can be found surrounding our town.

    The first settlement of Marmaris was called Physkos and is still being excavated by archaeologists today. The ruins are known as Asartepe. Legend has it that Suleyman the Magnificent ordered the castle in Marmaris to be enlarged. He then travelled to Rhodes and upon his return found it was still too small for his liking and ordered his men to "mirmari" which means hang the architect!

    The Tomb of Sariana
    On the Northeastern slopes of the city behind the neighboring Sariana is the newly built Mosque which stands next to a tomb. Renowned for its oracular powers, the tomb was visited by Suleyman the Magnificent during his journey to Rhodes. Following good news from the Oracle, the Sultan decided to lay siege to the Island. It was known that the breakfast of the Ottoman Legions consisted of fresh milk, milked from Sariana's famed cow.

    The Kervansaray
    Surrounded by arches, this structure is built of stone and is in Ottoman style. Built in 1545, the Kervansaray contains 1 large and 7 small rooms. Today it is used as a shopping center for souvenirs
    The Tashan (Stone Inn) & The Aqueduct
    Structured by Suleyman the Magnificent in 1522 near the Iskelebasi, distanced 10km. from Marmaris along the Mugla highway.

    Shopping is done in a historical atmosphere where you can breath in the mystical air that surrounds you here.
