From a turn—off 0n the highway to Antalya, 30 kilometres outside Alanya, a road leads up to the Alara Stream. From here, a steep climb on hillside and stairs is rewarded by an enchanting view once you reach the Fortress. The Fortress, built at this spot during the reign of Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat to safeguard the road between Antalya and Alanya, maintained a stronghold over the active trading routes of the period. The clear air and view at the hilltop makes the climb more than worthwhile
