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.

Fine historical artifact, beautiful example of the architecture of the 1st century. A part of the ancient peace which is preserved in the center of the new city.

It's at the "entrance" of the old town of Antalya. It's a beautiful structure. It looks really nice at night.

Its truly a beautiful area to spend a half a day in. Magnificent old buildings, bars, restaurants. Lots of spots for photos overlooking the city the gate itself is remarkable just walk along the old streets have a bite to eat and drink its worth at least a few hours walk.

One of the best attractions in antalya. Very ancient place that reflects the preturkish roman era of antalya. The best thing about hadrianus gate is that it lives in the middle of the city. It still lives with people of thi city. It is also like a gateway to kaleiçi section. Result: recommendable.
