Hisarönü

Hisarönü

13 km from D Maris Bay lies Hisarönu, a lovely little village which nestles at the foot of the mountains and spreads out towards the shore. It is said to have been founded at the time of Sultan Süleyman's expedition to Rhodes.

Erine was the name of the village when the Greeks were living here and in Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman times it was believed that the clean sea and the outstanding greenery of the environment were good for many ailments, leading to the foundation of many hospitals in the area, the remains which can still be seen to this day.
