The Hittites named the city they founded in this region 4,000 years ago as 'Wiyanawanda', that is, 'wine city'. Later, the Lycians called it 'Oenoanda', which derives from the word 'Oeno', which is from the ancient Greek 'oinos' meaning wine. Elmali, the modern town which you will visit is the center of this ancient wine region.
