Castle Of Alanya - 3;

The Alanya Castle, which is located on a site used as a place of settlement throughout the history thanks to the difficulty in accessing it either by land or by sea that made it naturally sheltered, is one of the best-preserved medieval castles among the hundreds of castles in Anatolia. It is like an open-air museum with its almost 6.5 km long walls, about 140 bastions, approximately 400 cisterns inside it and glorious gates with inscriptions and decorations. The walls begin at the Red Tower (Kızılkule) and pass through Ehmedek, Inner Castle (İç Kale), Adam Atacağı, the section above the Cilvarda promontory, Arap Evliyası (Arab Saint) bastion, Esat bastion, Tophane (arsenal) and Tersane (shipyard) before ending at the Red Tower.
