Private Ephesus Tours from Alacati and Cesme
Alacati gained great importance in history because of its secure port. Alacati Port is one of the safest ports in the south of Cesme Peninsula. The history of Alacati dates back to 3000BC. Alacatı started to develop at the beginning of 1800's. At the beginning of the 1800s, the phylloxera disease hit the vineyards in Europe and made all the vineyards inefficient. Alacati benefited from this. After 1830, disease-free, quality grapes and wines, which grow on fertile soil of the region, are opened to the world from Alacati Port. The most important factor in the development of the economy of Alacati at that time was wine production and olive oil production.
