Owner description: 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.

This should be your starting point when you want to explore the Old Town of Antalya. The gate is over 1800 years old and dates back to the Roman era.

there isn't that much left from the old walls around ancient Antalya. But the leftovers do give an impression of how big it must have been.

The gate is a large, ominous structure which is the entrance to the old walled city. The easiest way to find it is to follow the tram tracks running for some kilometres along the foreshore in Antalya city. At one end of the tram route is the Antalya Museum and six stops towards Kaleici old town is the Hadrian's Gate... More

Its this beautiful piece of ancient history that stands there where you would least expect it, being a kind of portal to another time. I stayed there for a while just enjoying being there with such a structure.

we passed by the Gate while walking going to the town center. We took photo only from outside the Gate and didnt go inside but from outside we could see how beautiful the architecture of the Gate and its areas.

This is located in the old town. It is free to visit, you can can stop by in the afternoon or the evening to see it. It was build by the same emperor who build the wall separating Scotland from England in ancient time. It is well preserved. It is worth the visit.
