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.

Beautiful old preserved gate to the old city of Antalya. Great experience to walk through these gates that people have been walking through for hundreds of years, you can feel the history there.

A sight that can be seen just off one of the main shopping roads leading into the old town area. Nice bit of Turkish history that was free to walk through. Worth seeing if you are in the area.

Here is an ancient historical part of Antalya in the middle of the city. The gates are one the entrances to Old City. It is free to see and a normal place for locals :)

Turkey is an amazing place of incredible historic significance. This can be overlooked when the heat, the beach and the shopping are also so good but the long flow of history across the whole region adds another dimension. The Romans were in Turkey for a...More

Well, what can I say, it's a gate, you can still walk through it, it's impressive to look at. It's a large triple arched gate constructed I believe in 130 AD to commemorate Emperor Hadrian's visit to the city. It's worth seeing if you are...More

Impressive Roman ruins the real gem is what you find behind it in the old town. You dont need much time to see the gate but you do need time to explore the old town

This part of the city is very historical with many old buildings and streets to walk through all very close by. Market and shopping choices + plenty of restaurants to enjoy during sightseeing.
