Description

The Taurus Mountains created a natural border between many great civilizations because they were very difficult to cross. The mountains split the Assyrian and Babylonian empires as well as the Byzantine empire and caliphates of Damascus and Baghdad. One of the few roads across the range is the Cicilian Gate connecting Cappadocia and Cicilia. -CK
