A historical site not to be missed. Just off Atatürk Boulevard you’ll see the impressive three double arches of the gates, which were erected in 130 to celebrate the visit of Emperor Hadrian. Legend has it that in ancient times, the queen of Sheba passed through the middle arch on her way to Aspensos and spent a happy night with King Salomon. With the exception of the columns, the arch is made from white marble and is richly decorated.

If you like history then this is a must. You can still see all the chariot grooves. Walk through the old city cobbled streets and you will arrive at Hadrian's gate and then to the harbour. A lovely way to while away a few hours

You will experience pure history intermingled within the daily life. Be sure to go there during spring or fall otherwise you may need to keep motionless like a lizard under the sun

The most interesting entrance to Kaleici, the old city. Be careful of the steps. A good place to meet. Outside there are seats to watch life on the busy main street. Also opposite the tram stop. Bus stop too.

When leaving the calm Kaleici area be sure to pass through this fine gate before entering the busy streets of Anatalya.

The Turkish call it "Üç kapılar" 3 gates. It is the entry way to the old town. It does not take long to see it but it is impressive.

Fine historical artifact, beautiful example of the architecture of the 1st century. A part of the ancient peace which is preserved in the center of the new city.
