ALANYA CASTLE Alanya Castle is one of the symbols of Alanya, the district of Antalya. It is located on a peninsula rising approximately 250 meters from the sea. The length of its walls is 6.5 kilometers in total. The history of the castle, which is a 13th century Seljuk artifact, dates back to the Hellenistic period. The castle was built by the Seljuk Sultan Alaeddin Keykubad I, who took the city and had it rebuilt in 1221. There are 83 towers and 140 bastions in the castle. In the Middle Ages, about 1200 cisterns were built to meet the water needs of the city, which was inside the walls. Some of the cisterns are still in use.
