Medical Aromatic Museum

Besides its historical and cultural richness, Hatay, the city of tolerance, occupies an important position with its natural beauties as well. Around 3300 of the 10000 plant species in our country, and around 300 of more than 2000 species in Hatay consist of endemic plant species.

The building that hosts the first Medical and Aromatic Plants Museum ever Turkey, which was opened to visits in 2012 after the restoration works were completed in order to introduce some of the medical and aromatic plants detected in Hatay, is a 2-story old Antakya House that was built in the 19th century. 280 medical and aromatic plant species were presented to the local people.
