We need to go back hundreds of years to find out about Selimiye’s history. In that time town was used to call as Hydas. Then, they started to call Losta. At some point, the name had been returned as “Kızılköy” by reason of sunset’s color. Because Kızıl means red in Turkish.
The archaic era had been left some touch up for Selimiye. Besides that, there are three old castle ruins in Selimiye. One is located at the top point of the village, the other is in Kızılköy region and the last one is located on Sarıkaya hill. Those are the places of attraction for history lovers.
