Smyrna is the ancient name of Izmir which is not only one of the earliest settlements but also one of the most beautiful cities of the Aegean Region.
The two historical sites located in the city center were established in the 11th century.  Many ancient monuments such as the sophisticated houses, sacred structures and monumental fountains that have survived the ancient times are now being brought to light through excavations conducted in the Bayraklı and Kadifekale districts.
