Roman Emperor Hadrianus BC. Hadrian's Gate, which was built in 130 while visiting the city, is considered as the most important work that reflects the ancient times of Antalya. Although the sculptures on the door near Kaleiçi disappeared over time, the Latin inscription preserved its existence. The marble columns in the Corinthian style of the building, which was once a part of the walls surrounding the city, stand out with its engravings and carvings.
Düden Waterfall, which is 10 kilometers away from the city center, is divided into 2 branches after it comes to the surface in the place called Düdenbaşı. The section called “Upper Düden”, especially from these two branches, resembles paradise thanks to its peaceful environment surrounded by rich vegetation. The upper arm of the waterfall, which includes restaurants, cafes and shops selling souvenirs, is also known as “İskender Waterfall” because of the story that tells that Alexander the Great was drinking water to his horses while passing here. Lower Düden (Karpuzkaldıran), which forms the other branch, pours into the sea by creating a unique view from Lara.
