Fascinating its visitors with its natural beauty, Düden Waterfall sheds light on history with its ancient ruins. The ancient olive oil workshop and ancient tombs belonging to the 2nd and 7th centuries BC within the borders of the waterfall were officially registered for the first time with the initiatives of the Metropolitan Municipality.


Located within the borders of Kepez district, 10 kilometers from the city center, Düden Waterfall takes its visitors on a journey in history besides its natural beauty. According to the information received from the authorities, the necropolis (cemetery area) and olive oil workshop belonging to Lyrboton Kome Village in this region were within the borders of Düden Waterfall in ancient times.
