This is one of the few still-existing cities in the world which was founded by, and indeed gets its name from '''Alexander the Great''' (who is known as ''Büyük İskender'' in Turkish), with [[Alexandria]] in [[Egypt]] being the other notable example. İskenderun today has a population of about 300,000 people and is an industrialized city, surrounded by petrochemical plants and steelworks, although the city centre is still enjoyable with its lovely palm-lined promenade on the shore of the sea.
