  Tarsus: (Hittite: Tarsa, Greek: Ταρσός, Armenian: Տարսոն, Tarson) is a historical city in south-central Turkey, 20 km inland from the Mediterranean Sea. It is part of the Adana-Mersin Metropolitan Area, the fourth-largest metropolitan area in Turkey with a population of 2.75 million. Tarsus is an administrative district in Mersin Province and lies in the core of the Çukurova region.
With a history going back over 2,000 years, Tarsus has long been an important stop for traders, a focal point of many civilisations including the Roman Empire, when Tarsus was capital of the province of Cilicia, the scene of the first meeting between Mark Antony and Cleopatra, and the birthplace of Saint Paul.
 

 

 
  Geography: Located on the mouth of the Tarsus Çay (Cydnus), which empties into the Mediterranean Sea, Tarsus is a junction point of land and sea routes connecting the Cilician plain (today called Çukurova), central Anatolia and the Mediterranean sea. The climate is typical of the Mediterranean region, summers very very hot, winters chilly and damp.
Tarsus has a long history of commerce and is still a commercial centre today, trading in the produce of the fertile Çukurova plain; also Tarsus is a thriving industrial centre of refining and processing that produces some for export. Industries include agricultural machinery, spare parts, textiles, fruit-processing, brick building and ceramics.
Agriculture is an important source of income, half of the land area in the district is farmland (1,050 km²) and most of the remainder is forest and orchard. The farmland is mostly well-irrigated, fertilised and managed with the latest equipment.
 

 

 
  Places of interest:
Tarsus has a great many ancient sites of interest, with many in need of restoration and research. The best known include:
Cleopatra's Gate - to the west of the city, the only ancient city gate still standing, where Anthony and Cleopatra entered the city in 41 BC, though the "restoration" of this structure has involved covering much of it over with shiny new stone (see [2] for a picture of the gate before the work was done).
The Roman bridge of Justinian over the Berdan River. Still in good condition.
Tarsus Museum - contains lots of ancient coins and a severed mummified arm.
Roman road north of Tarsus
Ancient road another Roman road within Tarsus.

Sites of religious interest and pilgrimage:
The St. Paul's Church and well (a request for its restitution to Christian worship was declined but has now apparently been accepted by the authorities- Badische Neueste Nachrichtungen 26 August 2010).
The tomb of the Seven Sleepers, busy place of pilgrimage for Muslims today.
The mosque said to be the burial place of the Prophet Daniel.
The ancient story of Pegasus, the winged horse, also concerns Tarsus. Because of Pegasus' faithful service to Zeus, Pegasus was honored with a constellation. On the last day of his life, Zeus transformed him into a constellation, then a single feather fell to the earth near the city of Tarsus.
From the Turkish era:
The old baths; the dark brown spots on the white marble walls are said to be the bloodstains of Shah Meran, the legendary Snake King who was killed in an ambush in the baths.
Tarsus American College; founded in the Ottoman period, still active today.
"Nusret (Nusrat)" the minelayer used to defend the straits before the Battle of Gallipoli is being restored in Tarsus; it is to be part of a memorial park to those lost in the fighting.
Places of natural beauty include:
Tarsus Waterfall; since the construction of the Berdan dam the water of the Tarsus river has been distributed in canals for irrigation, with the result that the waterfall can now be seen only in seasons of very heavy rainfall.
Karabucak Forest; popular picnic area a few kilometers south of the city center
