Two and half centuries after that, during the time of Alexander The Great; Alexander knew and said if he will want to come to the end of the world, he will have to be able to cross the Halys River; and in 333 BC Alexander has succeed in his venture. The most famous historical feature of Avanos, which is still relevant and very visible today, is its production of earthenware pottery.
