Tour overview

Payas is a harbor town on the road connecting Anatolia to the Middle East. Because of its strategic importance, it has been home to numerous civilizations, and in AH 921 / AD 1516, in the wake of the Battle of Mercidabık, it became part of the Ottoman Empire. The importance of Payas increased even more given the development of trade between the Ottoman Empire and the countries of the Middle East, as well as its location on the pilgrimage route. In order to fortify this strategic point and address the needs of travelers, Sultan Selim II ordered the construction of a complex here.
