The name of Side, the world-famous peninsula of Manavgat, comes from a sacred fruit in the local language, which historians call "Sidece": Pomegranate... The history of Side, one of the must-see places in Antalya, dates back to the 7th century BC. In the 4th century BC, it came under the rule of Alexander the Great 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 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 has become one of the symbols of Side. Today, the Temple of Apollo, which rises right in front of the ancient harbor and where everyone who comes to Side takes a photo, and the Temple of Athena right next to it, is one of the most well-known historical ruins of Side. The excavations of the ruins of the ancient city of Side waiting to be unearthed continue under the sponsorship of Barut Hotels.
