Hıdırlık Tower

Hıdırlık Tower (Turkish: Hıdırlık Kulesi) is a landmark tower of tawny stone in Antalya, Turkey, where Kaleiçi meets Karaalioglu Park. It is believed to be built in Hellenistic era on a square plan and later turned into circular tower in 2nd century AD and was either used as a fortification or a lighthouse in the past.

The tower is situated at the southern side of the place, where the land walls of the city join the sea walls. The 14m high structure consists a circular tower rising on a quadratic pedestal. The tower's gate at the eastern side leads to a small room, from where a narrow staircase goes up. There are signs of restoration work on the upper part done in the Seljuk and Ottoman eras.

Hırılık Tower is surrounded today with many cafés and restaurants having panoramic view of the Gulf of Antalya.
