Located on the southern coast of Turkey, the city of Alanya is located on an extremely strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea. Because it was built on a small peninsula, every major empire throughout the history of the region has laid some sort of claim to the area. The city moved from strategic to political importance in the Middle Ages, however, and this is when many of the city’s landmarks were built. With plenty of festivals throughout the year and an emphasis on tourism within the local economy, there is much to see and do in Alanya no matter when you choose to visit.
The Church of St. George
Though it is not one of the most popular sites to visit in Alanya, the Church of St. George does hold both religious and historical significance. Originally built as a mosque to honor and worship Suleiman I, it was later converted into a Christian church in the middle 17th century. Instead of being rebuilt, it stands today as a heritage to the Byzantine influences of the region. You can find this and many other landmarks to explore within the Alanya Castle area of the city.
The Caves of Alanya
One of the unique features of the Mediterranean region is that there are many caves to explore, both above ground and underwater. In Alanya, there are two caves that are worthy for exploration: Dim Cave and Damlatas Cave. Be prepared for lots of steps in the Dim Cave while you explore limestone drip stalactites and stalagmites. The Damlatas Cave is a smaller cave with similar features. Both will allow you to escape the heat of a summer’s day, fulfill the need to explore, and can be done on virtually any budget.
Take the Trip to Sapadere Canyon
It’s about a 30 minute trip outside Alanya, but if you feel the need to get out of the city for awhile, Sapadere Canyon is definitely the place to go. There are fruit gardens to visit, waterfalls to explore, and many rare plants to see. One of the most therapeutic environments that you may ever visit, Sapadere Canyon is a visible reminder that life is precious. Tranquil and picturesque, you’ll be able to take a walk in the sun, relax, and rejuvenate from the stresses of life.
