Marmaris in History
As a result of its geographical setting- situated where the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas meet one another – Marmaris is an important port and coastal town. It has thus acted as a stage where events between Aegean and Mediterranean countries were enacted. The jagged shores of Marmaris and the surrounding area, its well-protected coves and harbors facilitated relationships between Asian, European and Afrıcan countries.
Marmaris and its environs, steeped in Caria’s centuries-old history became pivotal marine bases thanks to the trade route between Rhodes and Egypt; an deven began to compete other Aegean ports.Still, invasions by inland cities trying to reach the sea were inevitable. http://www.marmaris.bel.tr/en/mar_hist.php
