This ancient city dates back to the Hellenistic period. It is estimated to live until the 5th century. The northern, eastern and southern cliffs of Sia, a city of Pamphylia, are surrounded by fortified walls. We have to say that these walls, which are 2 or 3 storeys, are quite remarkable.

There is no scientific excavation in Sia Antique City until today. For this reason, the surveys were very limited. As a result of the studies carried out, even though it is a superficial city, it has been determined that the city started in the Hellenistic period and ended in the Byzantine period.
Apart from the city walls that have been embracing the entire city, the two-storey tower and entrance door are the remains that have survived. It is thought to belong to the 3rd century baths. Sia Antique City, one of the most preserved cities of Psidia, is waiting for you to visit with its monumental tombs, two churches and majestic walls.
