Carallia ( Ancient Greek: Καραλλία) was a city of the Roman province of Pamphylia Prima and is mentioned in the acts of the Council of Ephesus (431). The same form of the name is given in the acts of the  Council of Chalcedon (451).
Synecdemus gives the name of this Pamphylian city as Καράλια ( Caralia).
William Smith took the Pamphylian Carallia to be identical with the town of Carallis (Κάραλλις, Καράλλεια) in
Isauria, which he identified with a place in Turkey called Kereli. The site of the Pamphylian town is supposed to be at Uskeles. 
Modern scholars place Carallia near Güney Kalesi in
Asiatic Turkey. 
Extant documents give the names of three
bishops of the ancient see of Carallia, a suffragan of the metropolitan see of Side, the capital of the province: Solon was at the Council of Ephesus in 431, Marcianus at the Council of Chalcedon in 451, and Mennas at the Third Council of Constantinople in 680. 
No longer a residential see, Carallia is today included in the
Catholic Church's list of titular sees.
