A great piece of history down there. Definitely recommend going there as a part of the Red Tower tour.

We decided to walk along the harbor wall and discovered an underground shipyard 800 years old! Only 2 euros to enter, the museum is a treasure of information and artifacts from long ago. Keep walking (watch out as there are lots of very uneven stone stairs - some very steep) and you'll end up at the cannon hall. Great views... More

The walk to the shipyard offers great views across the bay, if there isn't a cruise ship in the way! The shipyard itself is a architectural joy and well worth taking the time to visit, just be aware that the way out leads you to the cannon house and a very steep climb up to the street above. Turn round... More

Done the combined ticket to see shipyard, Tower and caves. This was a must as hubby from a ship building back ground. Great to see and look at history. Very steep on way up.

The tripadvisor picture of the Red Tower shows the shipyard. That picture is the red tower with part of the modern harbour beyond it. Nice picure, but no cigar. So anyway, if you're going and its not too hot, do both on the combined ticket. The tower has no lifts.

This is "connected" to the red tower at the edge of Alanya harbour. An ancient structure built to aid defences and construct and maintain vessels. There's a long walk along the fortified wall, with a couple of places selling drinks and snacks near the start. The shipyard itself is underground, built into sea caverns. There are a few displays showing... More

We planned to only walk a short distance but the view kept getting better and more magnificent. There is a little display of activities at the shipyard at the dock area. We never made it too the absolute top before closure. You may want to take a cab to the top and then walk down and end up at the... More
