Are you ready to open your doors for an enjoyable vacation and fun?

The beauty of Alanya makes it an attraction for tourists and offers everything you can dream of while on holiday. The unique geographical and cultural structure of the province, the attractive and comfortable hotels along the turquoise blue Mediterranean Sea and the rich taste of the world famous Turkish cuisine make it an ideal destination. The possibilities are endless; swimming in the bay where Cleopatra once bathed, lying back and soaking up the sun, exploring the mysterious sea caves on a blue cruise, or enjoying the rich heritage of Mediterranean civilizations, the accumulation of millennia, are just a few.


It is not known exactly when Alanya, located on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, was first founded. However, the exploration in Kadıini Cave, 12 kilometers from the center, suggests that the region's human history dates back to the Paleolithic era. The oldest known name of the settlement was Coracesium. As early as the 4th century BC, Alanya, under Persian control, exported honey and wine to Egypt. In 197 BC, the city successfully resisted an attack by King Antiochus III thanks to its strong defensive walls. The pirate Diodotus Tryphon started using Alanya as a safe haven in 137 BC, and the city quickly became a hub for Cilician sea bandits. The Roman commander Pompey made his victorious naval battle in 67 BC. An end to pirate activity in the region. After this war, the region was annexed to the Roman Empire and later Roman General Mark Antony gave the present to Cleopatra, the queen of Egypt.


During ancient times, the city passed between the control of neighboring Cilicia and Pamphylia, and during the 7th and 8th centuries AD, successive wars and economic stagnation caused the city.


The Seljuk period brought the history of Alanya to its peak. In 1221, the Seljuk Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat of Alanya made his winter residence and rebuilt the city, making Alanya the main base of the Seljuk navy. During this period defensive walls were also renovated and Kızılkule (Red Tower) and Tersane (Yard) were built. During the reign of Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror, in 1471, Alanya was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire and flourished as an important port for maritime trade with Egypt, Syria and Cyprus between the 13th and 18th centuries. In 1935 Atatürk visited the city and called it "Alanya". In our time, Alanya is one of the most prominent tourist destinations of the Mediterranean, with a rich historical and cultural heritage and modern facilities, making it easy to enjoy the sun, sand and sea.


If you are planning for the Mediterranean holiday, Alanya is the right choice.
