Local Area


Gaziantep, formerly known as Antep, is a city that combines a rich history stretching back well over 2,000 years with a vibrant present as one of Turkey’s fastest-growing economic centres. A key trading post on what came to be known as the Silk Road, the present-day city dates back to the Hittite era and was an important mercantile centre under a series of empires, including the Akkadians, Assyrians, Urartians, Babylonians, Persians, Macedonians, Parthians, Romans, Byzantines, Sassanids, Seljuks and Ottomans. The city is famed for its covered bazaars, where artisans practice the traditional art of coppersmithing for which Gaziantep is rightly famous. As you stroll the narrow lanes of its bazaars, you will find your strides begin to match rhythmic song of the smiths’ hammers as they beat intricate designs into fine copperware, everything from Turkish coffee pots to ornate trays to vases and even wall clocks. When you are ready for a break, sit down at a café and sample some of the pistachio baklava for which Gaziantep is renowned while you survey the exotic city-scape dominated by the Gaziantep Citadel, built by the Romans, restored in the 6th century AD by the Emperor Justinian and then largely rebuilt by the Seljuk Turks in the 12th and 13th centuries. From there, take a short taxi ride to the Gaziantep Zeugma Mosaic Museum, home to some of the finest Roman mosaics in existence, including the famous “Gypsy Girl” , ”statue of Mars the God of War “ and the “Birth of Venus”.



    Nearby Attractions

  • The Gaziantep Citadel, which is reputed to date back to the Roman era, dominates the centre of the city, its ramparts protectively surveying its surroundings. The citadel has been restored and rebuilt numerous times by virtually every kingdom and empire to rule the city, including the Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans. The citadel also houses a museum to the heroes who successfully defended the city against the French during the Turkish War of Independence.
  • The Gaziantep Zeugma Mosaic Museum is home to some of the best-preserved and most striking Roman mosaics in existence. Recovered from the Belkıs-Zeugma archaeological site, these mosaics are housed in what is the world’s largest museum devoted exclusively to mosaics. While the “Gypsy Girl” and the “Birth of Venus” are the highlights of the museum, its extensive collection includes mosaics of scenes from the Trojan War, Poseidon in his chariot and more.
  • The Gaziantep Museum houses an excellent collection of Hittite artefacts, most notably carvings and statuary. The museum also has an impressively large and diverse collection of ancient seals, which shed light on the way that business and government operated in ancient times.
  • The Bakırcılar Çarşısı, or Coppersmiths’ Bazaar, is an extensive collection of inter-linked open-air and covered bazaars located just south of the Gaziantep Citadel. While the workshops of coppersmiths who give the bazaar its name dominate the Zincirli Bedestan or souk portion of the bazaar, it is also overflowing with stalls selling brightly collared spices, local delicacies and, of course, carpets and jewellery.
  • Alaüddevle Mosque was built in the late 15th or early 15th century by the Dulkadirid ruler, Alaüddevle Bozkurt Bey. The only remaining part of the original mosque is its minaret, which is noteworthy for its Mamluk decorations. The mosque itself was built at the beginning of the 20th century under the direction of the architect Amenak by the master stonemason Kirko.
  • Kendirli Church, located in the centre of modern Gaziantep, was built in 1860 by French missionaries funded by Napoleon III. A testimony to the spirit of tolerance and hospitality that characterises Turkey, the church is notable for the black and white medallions that decorate it.
