Antalya Kaleici

2 thousand years ago, King of Pergamum II. Attolos orders his soldiers: "Go and find me the paradise of the earth!" Soldiers of Bergama wander for months and years and finally they see Antalya when they start descending from the foothills of the Taurus Mountains.

Heaven on earth is at your feet! They call it Attaleia and the foundations of Antalya are laid ... The name of the city where life began with the people of Bergama; Attaleia takes the name of Stelai, Satalya, Adalya and finally Antalya. Even if the name changes, the only thing that does not change is its dazzling beauty.

In the Hellenistic period, the life in which the people of Bergama were brought, first started in Kaleiçi. Antalya was conquered by the Romans with the will of the King of Pergamon and the city; It was ruled by the Byzantines, Christians, Arabs, Muslims, Seljuks and Ottomans respectively. You will find the traces of these civilizations in its narrow streets while walking around Kaleiçi, which is surrounded by two walls.
