Historical sites, which are an indispensable element of urban identity, remain under the influence of social, cultural and technological changes throughout their time. In this inevitable change, it is of vital importance to transfer the historic fabric to the future without losing its unique qualities. Akçaabat district, which had been the capital of Islamic and Christian societies in history and influenced by the differences in the lifestyles of these societies, is one of the important historical sites of our country. Akçaabat district, whose history dates back to ancient times, is one of the rare districts of the Black Sea, which has been able to transfer many works belonging to the Roman, Byzantine, Komnenos and Ottoman periods from past to the present day. Akçaabat Ortamahalle, which was declared an urban site in 1988 with its original historical surroundings, has been undergone in a process of conservation and regeneration.
