The siege of Antalya or siege of Attalia in 1207 was the successful Turkic capture of the city of Attalia (today Antalya, Turkey), a port in southern-western Asia Minor. The capture of port gave the Turks another path into the Mediterranean although it would be another 100 years before the Turks made any serious attempts into the sea. However it did show the weakness of the splinter Byzantine kingdom the Nicaean Empire which had suffered the loss of the Capital Constantinople, now being reduced to the Asian part of Byzantium.
