Alanya in Turkey- The remaining buildings reflect the importance of the city in Seljuk times. Besides the impressive citadel, tourists should explore the unique dockyards and the octagonal Kizil Kule (Red Tower). Alanya is a beautiful holiday centre of modern hotels and motels, numerous fish restaurants and cafes.
The cafes that ring the harbour have become popular gathering places for tourists. From the town’s lovely park, the road runs along the coast to the harbour lined with countless boutiques which tempt tourists with handicrafts, leather, clothes, jewellery, handbags and the amusing painted gourds, a symbol of the area.
In August when Alanya hosts a colourful International Folklore Festival the atmosphere is charged with vitality and gaiety. If you enjoy exploring, you should visit the Damlatas Cave to see the misshapen rock formations.
