Çesme, meaning 'fountain',
derives its name from the many sources of water found in the area. A l4th
century Genoese fortress, restored and enlarged by the Ottomans in the
l6th century, dominates the small port of Çesme. Around Çesme, the large
Altin Yunus Setur Marina complex and the berthing places of Ilica and
Dalyan are all noted for their safety. In town, the l6th century
caravanserai built by Süleyman the Magnificent near the fortress, has been
converted into a hotel. Excellent shopping - the finest quality carpets,
leather goods, as well as souvenir items are available. At night, a
lively, fun atmosphere pervades, especially in the restaurants, cafes,
bars and discos along the promenade. In July, Çesme's International Song
Contest attracts world famous performers who add glamour and excitement to
the town. The thermal baths in the area, along with the natural springs
found right off the coast and which mix with the sea water in Ilica Bay,
provide soothing relaxation.
