Antakya Hatay Archeology Museum - MosaicThe main reason to visit Antakya is for its excellent Hatay Archeological Museum (Hatay Arkeoloji Müzesi) whose collection of well-preserved Roman mosaics ranks among the best of the world. Most of the mosaics have been unearthed at the suburb of Daphne, present day Harbiye, a main Roman holiday resort. The mosaics are well laid out in four rooms of the museum. Most of them depict scenes from Greco-Roman mythology.

The pictures that are shown here date from our visits in 2004 and 2013. In 2014, the museum moved to a new location and contains now the world's largest display area for mosaics.
