Iskenderun is now a busy commercial centre and an important port of Turkey on the Mediterranean region, in a fine location on the shores of a deep bay and at the foot of the Amanos Mountains. Once called Alexandretta, it was founded by Alexander the Great after his victory over the Persians. Dortyol (the plain of Issos) is where Alexander the Great won over Darius II and Persians in 330 BC. There is a fortress at Toprakkale built by the Crusaders which is still impressive. Iskenderun has an active, modern life with good restaurants and cafes among the palm trees by the Mediterranean Sea. On the way to Adana, you will pass through the large areas of fruit groves which provide all the orange, tangerine, and lemon needs of the whole country. About 20 kms from İskenderun is Yakaclk (Poyas) which preserves a splendid example of Ottoman architecture dating back to the 16th century.
