Side - Today

Today

In 1895 Turkish Muslim refugees from Crete moved to the ruined town and called it Selimiye. Today, Side has become a popular holiday destination and experiences a new revival.

It was a popular spot for watching the solar eclipse of March 29, 2006.

Having been the Bishopric of Eastern Pamphylia, it is still a titular see of the Roman Catholic church.

Famous quotes containing the word today:

    You can make children believe whatever you want, and the children of today are the soldiers and mothers of tomorrow.
    Dudley Nichols, U.S. screenwriter. Jean Renoir. Major Von Keller (Walter Slezak)

    Indeed, the best books have a use, like sticks and stones, which is above or beside their design, not anticipated in the preface, not concluded in the appendix. Even Virgil’s poetry serves a very different use to me today from what it did to his contemporaries. It has often an acquired and accidental value merely, proving that man is still man in the world.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Man is a question; woman is an answer. The mistake women make today is to offer themselves as answers before being questioned.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)
