Alanya Turkey

Alanya is a modern resort situated on Turkey's Mediterranean coast about one and a half hour from the Antalya Int. Airport. It is set between two wonderful beaches and against the spectacular backdrop of the Taurus Mountains.

Alanya played an important role during the 11th and 12th C as a primary port and naval base of the Seljuk Turks. Several well preserved and fascinating buildings remain. The Red Tower, Fortress and the medieval shipyards are well worth a visit.

Today, Alanya has a great deal to offer any visitor, beaches and water sports, history and culture, restaurants, bars and shopping.
