As a result of this competition, it caused the Troia War. In terms of ancient history, the region has hosted cities such as Thebe city, Lyrnessos city, Khrysa city, Killa City, Anderia city, Antandros city, Adramytteion city, Astrya city, Gargara city, many of which were destroyed during the Troia wars

While the historical Yeşilyurt Village, which has come to the present from centuries ago, carries you to the past with its architectural structure, it is also one of the attractive spots with its proximity to the sea.
Yeşilyurt Village, where both sea and mountain tourism is experienced together with its dense vegetation on the foothills of Kaz Mountains, is an oxygen tent that is only 3 km from the sea shore. The houses in the village are the best examples of stone architecture. The pathways of Yeşilyurt Village create an ideal track for those who love to walk. The village, with its slopes adorned with almond trees, medicinal plants, flowers and herbs that emit dizzying scents, is a real healing source especially for asthma and heart patients. The historical mosque, located in the square of the village where Greeks once lived, draws attention with its minaret. Since Greek masters worked in the construction of this mosque, this interesting structure resembles a church rather than a mosque.
In Yesilyurt Village, you can have a pleasant time with both nature and history.

In mythology, it is estimated by researchers in accordance with Homer's Iliad that the altar of the Chief God Zeus is here.
In the Iliad, Homer mentions that the Gods lived on Mount Ida and that they watched and ruled the Trojan War from here. It is also in this epic that Zeus, the God of Gods, lived here and watched and ruled the war. Researchers working in the region also think that this high place, built on a hill overlooking the sea and Edremit gulf, belongs to the chief god Zeus. The area defined as the Zeus Altar on Dede Hill was created by processing the rock mass. This rock mass is reached by a ladder consisting of hollow steps into the rock. There are altar niches, sitting platforms and a cistern space carved into it. This cistern, which is the size of a room under the altar and contains water, is called Zeus Cave.
The Zeus altar, still preserving its sacredness today, is worth seeing.
