Explore the Marvels of Ancient Pergamon on an Unforgettable Day Tour from Çeşme
Nestled 100 kilometers away from Izmir lies the ancient city of Pergamon, a place steeped in history, medicine, and the reverence of Zeus. In antiquity, Pergamon thrived as a vital trade hub within the Mysian region. It rose to even greater prominence when it became the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon from 282 to 133 BC, deriving its name from the legendary king, Pergamos. The city’s origins are intertwined with tales of conquest and cooperation, as it was said to have been named after Pergamos, who captured the city by defeating the King of Teuthrania. Another legend speaks of Gyrnos, the King of Teuthrania, seeking Pergamos’ aid in a battle, leading to the creation of two cities in their honor: Pergamon and Gryneion.
Discover the Rich Heritage of Pergamon
Pergamon made its first historical appearance in the early 4th century BC, marking the beginning of a transformation that saw the construction of magnificent palaces, temples, and theaters when it assumed the role of capital. The city was encircled by protective walls and watchtowers, underscoring its strategic significance. Following its annexation by Rome, Pergamon retained its stature as a leading city in Western Anatolia.
Pergamon, once an independent kingdom in 283 BC, continued to shine as a hub of historical, cultural, and commercial activity for 150 years. Its fame reached even greater heights when Alexander the Great was believed to have hidden his legendary treasure within the Pergamon Castle, making it a coveted prize for various kingdoms and civilizations.
