This area in ancient times was called Pamphylia. Situated in a picturesque bay, surrounded by lush green palm trees, oleanders and lemon trees reflected in the azure blue sea, Antalya is surrounded on three sides by high ridges of the Taurus Mountains, whose snow-capped peaks seem to crown it with a royal crown.
