Cesme is one of the most important tourism centers in Turkey. The name of the town, meaning `fountain` in Turkish, derives from the many sources of water found in the area. It is one of Turkey`s most beautiful stretches of coastline, surrounded by clear blue seas, while inland one can see landscapes of cultivated fields of aniseed, sesame, and artichokes, dotted with fig and gum trees. Cesme`s small fortress, now nicely restored as the local museum, looms over the square and provides a nice big dose of history and architectural character.
