ADANA CITY & SOUTHEAST REGION HOTELS OF TURKEY
CENTER - MERSIN
another of Turkey's historically fascinating treasure
houses with a nice climate, is the centre of
Cukurova - one of Cilicia's pivotal cities and
of the country's cotton industry. Sitting on the
eatern foot of the green Taurus mountains in the
center of an expansive plain and only a stone's
throw from the Mediterranean, this well-irrigated
and productive land served to make it appealing
as a prime location for many civilizations, like
the Hittites and Ottomans. Now Turkey's fourth-largest
city, Adana has begun taking on a more modern
look. According to Anatolian mythology, Adana
is thought to have gotten its name from Adanus,
the son of the Greek god of the heavens, Uranus,
and sits astride the Seyhan (Sarus) River linking
it to the Mediterranean Sea.
most certainly not disappoint visitors, with the
city itself a treasure trove of
museums, mosques and other architectural vestiges
of Adana's illustrious past.
Take a drive across a 4th-century bridge,
the Tasköprü, designed by the Roman architect,
Auexntus, and constructed with 21 arches, 7 of
which are under water. Walking
the streets of the modern Adana, guests will be
fascinated by the juxtaposition of the ages.
The outdoors person can leave the city
behind by heading to the nearby Taurus mountains
for trekking. Hunters
will find plenty of game such as hare, fox and
lynx on the Taurus; or how about the Karanfıl
Mountains for various game birds.
Adana has so much to offer a visitor that
it has begun to attract tourism from the west
as travelers head deeper into Asia and the Middle
Eastern world, with Turkey as its gateway.
