Alanya Castle and Monuments
The WallsThe walls are 6.5km in length, there are 140 towers, 400 cisterns, inscribed doors and the open-air museum here displays Seljuk art at its best. The form of the huge castle began during Seljuk times although its actual construction started in the Hellenistic era, and recent excavations indicate it was originally a palace.
KizkuleThe Kizkule, and the symbol of Alanya, is a unique Seljuk architectural building dating back to 1226 and was erected to control the harbour, it is 33m high and 29m in diameter has a hexagonal design and is inscribed as being built by architect Ebu Ali from Halep for Alâddin Keykubat, and materials from older buildings were used in its construction. Holes were made into it that had rubber on the fronts and were used for pouring asphalt and boiling water down onto enemies below.
Dockyard and TophaneThe dockyard that joins the castle is 57m long and 40m deep and has five arched vaults and was the Seljuk’s second marine base, after the one in Sinop , and was built in 1227. The two-storied Tophane built to protect the harbour was also constructed during the reign of Alâddin Keykubat.
