Photographer's Note

Foça Turk Rivierasi olara bilinen Mersin, Antalya dan baslayip Izmire kadar uzanan bolgenin icinde bulunmaktadir. Bu da bircok yerli ve yabanci turistleri "mavi tur"lara ve ya diger gezilere durak yapmaktadir.

Osmanli ve diger medeniyetlerden kalan tarihi evler ve mekanlar da, deniz, balik tekneleri ve doga butunlugu ile birlesmesi Foca ya Akdeniz kentlerini animsatmasinda buyuk etkileri vardir.

Eski Foça stretches along two bays; a larger one named Büyükdeniz ("the greater sea") and a smaller cove within that large one, named Küçükdeniz ("the smaller sea"), where the medieval castle is also located.

Many parts of the district are under strict environmental protection, due to the value of the flora and the fauna, and the beauty of the small bays and coves, especially between Foça and Yenifoça. Therefore, a judicious way to get to know the district would be by boat tours regularly organized in partance of the center town. Because of the protective measures, new constructions are not permitted in many parts of the district and Foça is set to preserve its unique characteristic as composed principally of old houses.
