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.

We had seen many such structures in both Croatia and Turkey over the past few weeks and there was nothing particularly interesting about this one. However if you are in the area, it is worth a look.

I was passed thru 35 years ago as first, Since then I do the same thing few Times a year. It is georgeous main gate of The old city. You will get a nice feeling just to walk on those stones, which has foot steps of billions of people.

This place could be one of the landmarks in Antalya but with the pass of the years the Hadrian's Gate has been enclosed between modern buildings, i guess from the fever construction of the 50. 60 and 70, as a consequence if you only see the picture can be nice but the environment of this place downgrade the same very...

This is one of the most historical touristic places in the city centre. Actually it is a triumphal arch which was built by Romans in BC 100. It is the entrance of the old town.
