Close to Aglasun, a town of Burdur province characterized by its natural beauties, Sagalassos is known to be the first of the Pisidian cities. After natural disasters and several unlucky events, such as the Arab raids, the ancient city of Sagalassos was deserted.

The earliest human settlements in Salagassos are thought to date back as early as the 3rd millennium BC. Salagassos was raised to prominence as the city of Alexander the Great. Thanks to the ongoing excavations in the area, each day brings new light to important findings left back in antiquity.
