Red Tower, Alanya

4.5
#3 of 19 in Museums in Antalya Province
A 13th-century architectural masterpiece and landmark, Red Tower is considered the symbol of the city of Alanya--as evidenced by its incorporation into the city's flag. Built in 1221 under the sultan's orders to protect the shipyard, the octagonal, Seljuk-style structure stands 33 m (108 ft) high and 12.5 m (41 ft) wide. The tower gets its name from the red brick used in construction, whose color remains bright and noticeable today along the coastline. Enter to see the museum housed within, which opened in 1979 and includes exhibits on the history of the tower, town, and heraldry.

  • A bit of history won't kill anyone:). Beautiful view on the entire Alanyy, really worth watching. Browse the historical monument and finally swim directly below it is really beautiful.

  • Inside when you enter, you are urged to read the story of being immersed. I would recommend Also Kaleyede must get out
