Alanya Archeology Museum The Alanya Archeology Museum was opened in 1967 with artifacts from the Bronze Age, Urartu, Phrygian and Lydian periods brought from the Ankara Anatolian Civilizations Museum
and enriched with artifacts from the excavations in the region or brought to the museum in various ways. The museum, which has an extensive collection, has archeology and ethnography sections. In addition to the rich ash boxes and coin collection with bronze, marble, terracotta, glass, and mosaic finds from the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine,
the museum also includes Turkish-Islamic Artifacts from the Seljuk and Ottoman periods.
Alanya Castle
Alanya Castle, which has a magnificent view, is one of the best medieval castles that has survived this day among hundreds of castles in Anatolia thanks to its naturally sheltered location. You can watch Cleopatra and Keykubat Beaches, the harbour and Cilvarda Cape from a bird’s eye view from the castle, an open-air museum with nearly 400 cisterns, ornate gates,
140 bastions, and 6.5 kilometres of walls. At the castle entrance, which fascinates its visitors with its timeless durability and unique architecture, there are all kinds of souvenirs you can buy as a souvenir.
Alara Han
Alara Han, built by the Anatolian Seljuk Sultan Alaaddin Keykubad in 1231-1232, is located on Alara Stream’s edge. Designed as a small courtyard with a square plan at the entrance, the inn is worth seeing as it is located on the Historical Silk Road and reflects the Seljuk Architecture in
the best way. The restored inn is open to visitors and now serves as a restaurant.
Damlataş Cave
In 1948, there is a 50-meter passage at the cave entrance, which was found during the pit opening for the stone to be used in the construction of the port. After reaching a height of 15 meters, the passage gets a cylindrical cavity and descends to the cave floor. The cave, whose stalactites and stalagmites were formed 15 thousand years, was named Damlataş because of the drops of water that continue to drip from the stalactites. Damlataş Cave, a favourite of local and foreign tourists, is famous for its extraordinary features and good air for asthma patients.
Dim Cave
The cave opened in 1998, Turkey’s 2nd largest cave opened to visitors. One of the cave branches, which is estimated to be one million years old, is 50 meters, and the other is 360 meters. There is a small lake at the bottom of the cave, which consists of stalactites and stalagmites. After visiting the cave, where you will feel like you are in a fantastic movie set, you
