A Holiday Paradise for Tours of the ever-changing Colours of Antalya

There are fabulous works of art from the different civilizations at every corner of the city. In the charming old quarter of Kaleiçi with its narrow, winding streets and old wooden houses dotted about the ancient city walls. When Emperor Hadrian came to Phaselis in Antalya in around 130 AD, a beautiful decorated three-arched gate with Corinthian columns was constructed into the city walls to mark his honour and was the only entrance through the city walls. The clock tower that you will see in Kalekapısı Square was also part of the old city’s towers. This elegant, fluted minaret of the Yivli Minaret Mosque at the centre of the town, erected in the 13th century by the Sultan Alaeddin Keykubat, has now become Antalya’s symbol.

The two crucial Ottoman mosques in the city are the 16th-century Murat Paşa Mosque with its beautiful tile decoration. Next, to the marina, you will find the attractive late 19th-century İskele Mosque which is built of stone and is set on four pillars over a natural spring.

With trekking routes and beautiful beaches, Antalya is definitely a holiday paradise offering much more than one might expect and all of this can be seen on sightseeing tours in Antalya.
