    Probably the best place to start your tour of the Kaleici - old Antalya. Located right at the center, near the Yivli Minaret and beside the Tekeli Mehmet Pasha Mosque, the clock tower is the only tower left out of the 80 towers making up the ancient walls surrounding the city of Antalya.

    Hidirlik Kulesi the Old Stone Tower is an ancient fortress. Located in east of Kaleci in Antalya Karaalioglu Park.

    The tower is overlooking the Gulf of Antalya and the historical Roman harbour.

    The surrounding gardens are beautifully maintained with shrubs trimmed to Bonsai forms, giving the impression of a Japanese garden in the tropics. Nearby there are three modern statues standing. see photos

    Antalya, the old city

    Antalya, Old City

    Antalya of course is very touristic and even the old city is crowded with people.
    But that doesn't mean that the old city doesn't have its charmin spots.
    Like the combination of a refreshing fountain, and old clock tower and a mosqua

    The ancient city of Antalya was protected by two walls, in the shape of a horseshoe, one enclosing it along the shore and the other inland. In addition, there were walls within the city separating the various settlements, and a great number of towers. the walls were built from many stone blocks with ancient inscriptions. They were well protected until the end of the 19th century.

    Tekeli Pasa Cammii

    If you walk down the Uzun çarsi Sokak, the street next to Saat Kulesi. On the left hand side is the Tekeli Mehmet Pasa Camii, built by the Beylerbey (Governor of Governors) Tekeli Mehmet Pasa.

    The building was repaired extensively in 1886 and 1926. Note the beautiful Arabic inscriptions in the coloured tiles above the doors and windows.
