Alanya - Discover Turkey
Alanya is situated on a small peninsula with the Taurus Mountains to the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. Because it lay between Pamphylia and Cilicia in ancient times, it was sometimes called Pamphylia and sometimes Cilicia.
Alanya, a popular resort about 135 kilometers from Antalya, attracts countless tourists to Turkey every year. From April to October, Alanya turns into a big city famous for Cleopatra's beaches, castles and nightlife.
