Eregli, whose ancient name was Heraklea ad Pontus, stands on a hill adjacent to a former Byzantine castle. In the spring, the aroma of strawberries some of the sweetest grown in Turkey fills the air and makes a visit a mouth watering experience. Eregli derives its name from the mythological demi god, Hercules, who, in his 11th labor, caught the three headed dog, Cerberus the guardian of the gates of hell. According to Xenophon, Cerberus resided in the cave Cehennemagzì (Entrance to Hell), outside of Eregli near Kavakderesi.
