KARABAG VILLAGE TURGUTREIS
15 minutes from Turgut Reis situated the tiny village of Karabag, believed to be the site of the first settlement in the area.

The word 'bag' means either 'vineyards' or 'ties', and there are two very different theories as to the origins of the name. One theory has it that the local grapes were of particularly high quality.

Another more colorful story relates that a group of Venetian traders were captured and tied up by the local women, with the name 'Karilar Bagi' (wives ties) later being shortened to Karabag.
