Having been home to 28 nations throughout its 7000-year history, these fertile lands, where figs, olives, cotton, spices, grapes, tobacco and many fruits and vegetables grow, harbor a cultural mosaic from ancient times to the present.

Having nested the civilizations such as Ionian, Lydian, Persian, Pergamon, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Seljuk, Genoese, Rhodes Knights, Crusaders, Aydınoğulları, Helen and Ottoman, the region raised important figures of the ancient time, who left their marks in the world history. Mother Goddess Kybele, Father of Gods Zeus, Artemis, and the famous Historian Herodotus are some of them.

Having passed under the control of Aydınoğulları in 1329, the region is also one of the first Turkish settlements. During the Ottoman period, some of these lands were given to the members of the dynasty, and some were to the infantry chiefs to be used as farms. It is the only village whose name is mentioned in the texts of the 15th century.
