Erzincan
   
Like the other Anatolian cities, Erzincan's history starts with the Hittites but the importance of the city rose after the Turks conquered it. There are lots of historical remains which have been damaged. The ruins from the Urartians are the Kemah Fortress, Mana Hatun Tomb, and Kotur Bridge. For nature lovers, Lake Kaynayan and Girvelik Waterfall are worth seeing. After the recent earthquake in 1992, the city was badly damaged.
   

   
Time Line of Tefrica  
   
A town in central Anatolia, briefly the chief city of an heretical sect, the Paulicians, who seized a wide territory in Anatolia before being defeated by an Orthodox Byzantine army in the battle at Bathiriacos. Two hundred years later, the district was the base for a Seljuq governorship.
