Located on the peninsula in the province of Antalya, this castle attracts attention with the fact that its walls are 6,5 km long.
The historical texture of the Seljuks has given them the appearance of the present day. Following the conquest of Alaeddin Keykubad I in 1221, this fortress has 83 towers and 140 burcu. In the Middle Ages, some of the nearly 1200 cisterns built in the city walls to provide water for the city are still in use today.
This castle, which is the symbol of Alanya, was founded in the name of the 2nd Korakesion. In turn, the pirate Tryhos, the Romans, the Seljuks, the Karamanoğulları, the Mamlûks and later the Ottoman State took ownership.
Alanya Castle has one of the most beautiful sunsets of the world. In the evening you can sit in one of the surrounding areas and watch the sunset, as well as take in the scenery of that postcard that occurs after the sun has set.
