In archaeological researches carried out in Urla, where nature and history embrace, it was discovered that Limantepe Tumulus in İskele Mahallesi was a center which dates back to 4000 BC. One of the most important findings is the city harbor, which is considered to be one of the oldest known port in Aegean Sea. The ancient Klazomenai City is also located in the port area. The city became an important trade center especially in olive oil production in Antiquity.

Urla is a beautiful town. You can came across towns like this at every step in Italy, in France but in our country there are very few places like this. Urla, despite everything and still authentic.
You will be transported 30 years back in time just like a “snap” at the Historical Malgaca Bazaar. There is no noise. Lottery vendor deployed at the entrance sells tickets by listening to Turkish Classical Music from his battery-operated radio. Street dogs doze of under the sun both at summer and winter sun. Smell of bread come from bakeries. The old gentleman’s sit in front of coffee houses filled with old paintings or photographs hanging from the walls. The citizens of Urla wearing local Urla ghutrah pass from your right or left.
There are no apartment in Urla. The buildings have a maximum of 3 floors. Saturdays are Urla’s “Women’s Market” day. Urla is a women’s town. The mayor is also a woman.
In fact, as the poet says: “There is a day blue up to my head, there is a day sun is up to my head, there are also crazy days …”
These sentences are just for the Aegean, exactly for Urla. Abundance of blue, plenty of sun, plenty of love, plenty of peace is available here.
