History of Urla
Archaeological research in Urla has identified Limantepe Hill on İskele Mahallesi as the center dating back to 4000 BC. One of the most important finds is the city’s port, which is considered to be one of the oldest known ports in the Aegean region. The ancient city of Klazomenai is also located in the port area. The city was an important trading center, particularly with the production of olive oil in ancient times. Urla was first reunited with the Aydınoğulları principality in the 1330s and joined the Ottoman lands in the late 14th century. Urla was incorporated into the founding structure that covered the revenues of the complex built by Ayşe Hafsa Sultan in Manisa in the 16th century. Denizli Mahallesi Mosque, Kamanlı Mosque, Sungurlular Mosque, Hacı Turan Kapan Mosque and Fatih İbrahim Bey Mosque plus the Hacı Turan Fountain are Turkish structures built in the 15th and 16th century.
