To get to know KONYAALTI in Antalya, we recommend that you read the article.
Konyaalti is a district located at the western end of Antalya, famous for its beaches of the same name. The beach, starting from the point where the cliffs end in the western part of the city, extends for 4-5 km to the port of Antalya. It is located on the Antalya – Kemer highway and is a popular destination for domestic and foreign tourists. It is stated that the region which is called Konyaaltı today is known as Koy Koyaltı biçiminde because Antalya is located on the cliffs until recently and turned into what is said in the folk language. Konyaalti is located within the Lycian borders according to the settlement map of Anatolian Civilizations. Lycia is the border with Pamphilya. B.C. The name of the Lycian civilization, which dates back to 30 years ago, is located in the Konyaaltı region and its name is Olbia.
Regarding Olbia, the Department of Archeology at Akdeniz University has been conducting research excavations for some time. Assoc. Dr. Nevzat Çevik describes the existence of Olbia as follows: “There are ruins that survived in a very wide area from Arapsuyu to Taurus.
While confirming the ancient sources referring to a strong fortress, he revealed that Olbia, whose location has always been discussed, was founded in and around the mouth of Arapsuyu, with the center being Deliktaş. 2.70 m. thickness of the early fortification walls and pier blocks indicate that Olbia is a coastal settlement where watercraft can dock. It is a small settlement built by Solymler who lives in Termesos for the purpose of trade and transportation. However, this settlement also features more than a ‘demos’. In fact, Imhoof-Blumer, ‘BC. He even argues that some Lycian coins made in the 5th century may belong to Olbia. “” … Olbia, the southern neighbor of Termessos, is the fifth city in Pampilia. ‘ The ancient sources from Hierocles to Strabo, compared to each other and the remains we have identified, make Olbia’s place in the Mediterranean geography more pronounced as today’s Arapsuyu. ”
The reason why Attalos II, who had Pamphilia in the name of Pergamon kingdom with the Apameia peace treaty, wanted to establish a new port city right next to Olbia is hidden in the geography of Ancient Olbia: “the pier blocks, identified in some researches made in the early 60s It shows that the sea had entered the west of Deliktaş, which was protected by walls and that the ships had taken refuge. Apparently, this opening was filled with sand walking from the sea and alluvial arapsuyu and became unusable in time. This is one of the reasons Attalos is looking for a new place.
It is evident that Olbia was a homeland to Solymler who wanted to sail to the sea. This dormitory is not exactly a city, but it is strong enough to have a colony called Cadrama in Lycia. However, with the loss of Olbian people who left with Attalos and left under the influence of the new city BC. From the middle of the 2nd century, OLBIA began to lose its importance. However, it is evident that there is a settlement in the Byzantine era … “Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nevzat Çevik states the places they could find as a result of their research:” … At the corner where Pamphilia Gulf faces to return to Lycia in the south west of Antalya, Deliktaş (near Konyaaltı grove) and Arapsuyu are scattered in the area extending to the campus of Akdeniz University in the north and to Boğaça in the west. The ruins start at the nose next to the east of Konyaalti. Terraces descend from the east and north sides of the mound which is 9.8 m high from the sea. Along the upper terrace are the building floors opening to the bedrock. On the southern steep side of the hill, the natural cavity chamber within the semi-independent rock mass descends from the upper terrace by stepped rock. It is understood from the wall nest that opens along the way that the road is hidden and protected by a wall … The building where the whole sea can be seen from its wide span must be a guard room. Remains of fortifications were found at the tip of the higher cliff about 100 m north of this hill; As a result of this research, BC. Tile graves were seen in 5-4 centuries.
The Municipality of Konyaaltı was established in 1994. Until 2008, while Antalya Metropolitan Municipality was the first tier municipality with 24 neighborhoods, it became a district with the Law on Establishment of Districts and Amendments in Some Laws within the boundaries of Metropolitan Municipality dated 06/03/2008 and numbered 5747. With the same law, the legal entities of Beldibi and Doyran first level municipalities were abolished and joined Konyaaltı Municipality together with their neighborhoods and the number of neighborhoods increased to 31. In addition, due to the fact that Beldibinin is connected to Kemer District, 2 neighborhoods have emerged from the district boundaries and 10 villages of the district have changed to neighborhood with the General Election of Local Administrations held on 30 March 2014 pursuant to Law no. Thus, the number of neighborhoods was 39.
