Side, one of the must-see places in Antalya, dates back to B.C. It dates back to the 7th century. B.C. It came under the rule of Alexander the Great in the 4th century and later became part of the Roman Empire. Side, which has hosted many civilizations throughout history and was the most important port city of Pamphylia in ancient times, lived through the periods of Greeks, Lydians, Persians, Romans, Seljuks and Ottomans.

The chief goddess of Side, which stood out as a rich port city during the Roman period, was Athena and the chief god was Apollo. The city hosted a temple dedicated to Apollo in ancient times, and the Temple of Apollo became one of the symbols of Side.
