Erdemli is a town and district of Mersin Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey, 35km west of the city of Mersin.GeographyThe district extends from the Mediterranean coastal plain, the largest agricultural area in Mersin Province, to high in the Taurus Mountains where there is forest, and then a large area (half the land area of the district) is high mountain above the treeline.Erdemli is a quiet rural district where the people are conservative, and is traditionally a stronghold of Turkish nationalist politicians; however some departments of Mersin University are opening branches here which will surely have an effect on the cultural and social life of Erdemli in the future. Museum-lovers will appreciate Ataturk House Museum and Silifke Museum. Head to Mersin Forum and Soli Centerfor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Erdemli side-trips: Silifke (Yaprakli Koyu, Imbriogion, &more), Mersin (CambazlI Kilisesi, MarinaVista Alisveris Merkezi, &more) and Caves of Heaven and Hell (in Kizkalesi). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Kiz Castle, delve into the distant past at Soli - Pompeipolis Antik Kenti, identify plant and animal life at Caglayan Vadisi, and kick back and relax at Susanoglu PlajI.
