In every settlement there are problems concerning environmental factors when the settlement, or parts of it, are designated a sit area. The most important characteristic that separates the problems of urban sit areas from other areas is that they have assets that cannot be renewed once they have been destroyed. While planning increased in the 1950s in our country, strategies were not produced to protect and develop areas in cities and towns with specific assets. This and similar situations resulted in the traditional housing fabric of the areas in which they were found being destroyed. While the planning / application problems, physical problems, social and economic problems in the urban sit areas where there are many cultural assets create important headlines, “tourism” too is a subject that has to be studied with all its ins and outs by itself.

In the communiqué, the environmental factors that affect urban sits, existing laws, tourism policies, the need for constructing new buildings as an extension of tourism and the evaluation of cultural assets in contemporary life, various studies on an international and national scale, the search for solutions and Mersin the city that developed as an extension of the trade that increased in the eastern Mediterranean especially after the 19th century are studied.
