Narlıkuyu - Turkey Narlıkuyu
Narlıkuyu is a small coastal town in Mersin Province, Turkey which name refers to the pomegranate. Narlıkuyu is situated on the Mediterranean coast, 65 kilometers or 40 miles south-west of Mersin, with delightful houses and picturesque harbor, along with some great sights nearby make it a great stop for tourists. It is a part of the Silifke district which is in turn a part of Mersin Province. It is on the Mersin Antalya highway between two districts of Mersin; Erdemli and Silifke. Narlikuyu is between Mersin and Silifke on the southern Mediterranean coast near Kız Kalesi. The town has many popular fishing restaurants, located around a small bay famous for its unusually cool and fresh water, fed by underground freshwater streams. The town was established in 1994 with the fusion of several small villages. Narlıkuyu was called Porto Calamie during Roman Empire.

A small 4th century building, once part of a bath and baptism complex financed by Poimenios of Corycus still survives to the present day. An inscription at the building's entrance reads:

"Dear Visitor, if you wonder who has discovered this miraculous water, know that he is Poimenios, the friend of the emporors and the honest administrator of the holy islands."

Probably the emperors mentioned were Arcadius (378-408) and Honorius (384-423). The holy islands are the Princes' Islands of Marmara.

The building is now a museum. The floor mosaic depicts three Graces; Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia as well as a couple of partridges and doves. The local name of the mosaic is Üç Güzeller (English: Three Beauties) The mosaic refers to the mythological story of the baptism of Aphrodite. The village of Kızkalesi named after the ancient castle built on a small island just facing the town is 3.5 kilometers or 2.2 miles east of Narlıkuy.
