Belen - the place at high level
The place has considerably grown during the last years. In the meantime there are more than 20,000 people.
This place has become famous by his nice view of the Iskenderun recumbent. Many people use the mountain ranges to escape from the muggy heat in summer directly by the sea. Especially the mountain pass, the only good connection between the sea and the backlands for more than 100 km after the north and the south is very important and announced. The place was already famous under Cicero (Erana) and (Pinara) with Plinius. In the place you can see a caravanserai from the time of Suleymann the Great.
