Antalya’s origins date to the Hellenic period of the 2nd or 3rd century BC. When the town of Attalea was an important naval port. Subsequently, the area was ruled by the Roman and Byzantine Empires, when the Mediterranean and Aegean regions of Anatolia was an important locale for the budding religion of Christianity.
In the 13th century AD, the city was conquered by the Seljuk Turks, who ruled over the city until the conquest of the Ottoman Empire. After World War II and the defeat of the Ottoman Empire, Antalya was briefly ruled by the Italians until the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923.
