Dzalisa is an archaeological site in Georgia dating back to the ancient kingdom of Iberia. It is situated in the Mukhrani valley, some 20 kilometres (12.4 mi) northwest of Mtskheta, and features remnants of a fortified city and various structures. The site can be identified with the Zalissa mentioned by Claudius Ptolemy (c. 100 to c. 170 CE) as one of the principal towns of Iberia. This archaeological settlement bears witness to the urban development of Iberia in the first centuries CE.
