Gaziantep Attractions

The Gaziantep Citadel, which is reputed to date back to the Roman era, dominates the centre of the city, its ramparts protectively surveying its surroundings. The citadel has been restored and rebuilt numerous times by virtually every kingdom and empire to rule the city, including the Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans. The citadel also houses a museum to the heroes who successfully defended the city against the French during the Turkish War of Independence.

The Gaziantep Zeugma Mosaic Museum is home to some of the best-preserved and most striking Roman mosaics in existence. Recovered from the Belkıs-Zeugma archaeological site, these mosaics are housed in what is the world’s largest museum devoted exclusively to mosaics. While the "Gypsy Girl" and the "Birth of Venus" are the highlights of the museum, its extensive collection includes mosaics of scenes from the Trojan War, Poseidon in his chariot and more.

The Gaziantep Museum houses an excellent collection of Hittite artefacts, most notably carvings and statuary. The museum also has an impressively large and diverse collection of ancient seals, which shed light on the way that business and government operated in ancient times.

The Bakırcılar Çarsisi or Coppersmiths Bazaar, is an extensive collection of inter-linked open-air and covered bazaars located just south of the Gaziantep Citadel. While the workshops of coppersmiths who give the bazaar its name dominate the Zincirli Bedestan or souk portion of the bazaar, it is also overflowing with stalls selling brightly collared spices, local delicacies and, of course, carpets and jewellery.
