It lies on an isthmus linking the Boztepe Peninsula to the mainland and is shut off from the Anatolian Plateau to the south by high, forest-clad mountains. The town's citadel and the foundations of the Temple of Serapis, now found in the grounds of the archaeological museum, suggest that the city may have been founded in the 7th century BC.
