Konacık - from combat to commerce
Once the city of Lelegs, the heroic inhabitants of Pedasa, today’s Konacık is steadily expanding, with the development of business premises all along the main road there. Konacık is in great demand by investors by virtue of its proximity to Bodrum and its location right on the arterial road connecting Bodrum with the peninsula’s other population centres.
According to the famous historian Herodotus, the ancient city of Pedasa (within the boundaries of present-day Konacık) was one of the most important cities for trade in the region. Wine made in Pedasa was very popular throughout the area and the vineyards which remain today are worth a look.
