Historical Texture of Kaleici
Kaleiçi is one of the oldest settlements in Antalya and bears traces of the Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman periods. Founded by Attalos II in the 2nd century BC, the city has been an important harbour city throughout history thanks to its strategic location. Kaleiçi, which became an important trade centre during the Roman Empire, was also used by the Byzantines. In the 13th century, the Ottomans, who conquered Anatolia, chose Kaleiçi as the capital of Antalya. Many mosques, baths, madrasahs and mansions were built during this period. The narrow streets, historical houses and old walls of Kaleiçi are the elements that make visitors feel this rich heritage.

Hadrian's Gate
Built in 130 in honour of the Roman Emperor Hadrian's visit to the city, this magnificent gate stands out with its excellent workmanship. The three-arched structure and the detailed reliefs on it exhibit the elegance of Roman architecture.
