It is bordered by Syria to the south and east and the Turkish provinces of Adana and Osmaniye to the north. The province is part of ukurova, a geographical, economical and cultural region that covers the provinces of Mersin, Adana, Osmaniye, and Hatay. The administrative capital is Antakya, while the largest city in the province is the port city of skenderun. There are border crossing points with Syria in the district of Yaylada and at Cilveg z in the district of Reyhanl . In Ottoman times, Hatay was part of the Vilayet of Aleppo in Ottoman Syria. After World War I, Hatay became part of the French Mandate of Syria. Unlike other regions historically belonging to Syrian provinces, Alexandretta was confirmed as Syrian territory in the Treaty of Lausanne agreed upon by Kemal Ataturk; although it was granted a special autonomous status because it contained a large Turkish minority.show more
