The oldest cities in the World

 Found in southern Turkey, close to the border with Syria, Gaziantep’s history extends as far back as the Hittites. The Ravanda citadel – restored by the Byzantines in the sixth century – is found in the city centre, while Roman mosaics have also been discovered.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge (English poet and philosopher): “They have no past; they are not an historical people; they exist only in the present.”
