  Giresun

In the 2nd-century BC, the Roman general Lucullus, who came to the ancient Cerasos, saw a delicious fruit here, and carried its trees back to his country. It was there then that the cherry (Kerasus) giving Giresun its name, spread all over the world.

52 kms east of Ordu, is this city founded near the ruins of a Byzantine fortress. Situated on a cliff overlooking the sea, this old castle possesses a panoramic view. Inside the city, there exists a church dating to the 18th century.

Just outside the harbor, is Giresun Island which also carries remains from the earliest times. The ruins of a temple, built by the Amazons to whom the island is said to have belonged, can be seen here in addition to a Byzantine Monastery.
