History of Giresun
The city's history really goes back to about 2nd century BCE, when Greek colonists from Sinope established themselves there. Byzantine and Turkish influence on many buildings also indicate its being under their rule as well. But the most astounding discovery is that this island may have been a popular haunt of the Amazonians, the remnants of which are visible to this day in the form of sacred fertility rites that are still performed. But now it is observed as a Muslim practice rather than a Pagan festival.
