The old Tersane shipyard is one of the striking sights of Alanya. This large building is located on the coast, not far from the Red Tower. Previously, the shipyard was one of the most reliable outposts of the fleet on the southern coast.
Today, the shipyard is quite impressive in size and extensive construction. The shipyard consists of five arched walkways and deep galleries facing the sea. The depth of the galleries is about 40 meters.
Tersane is one of the many monuments of the Seljuk times. The shipyard was built by Aladdin Keykubat in 1228.
Here you can also see a small mosque built next to the exit, and several outbuildings. There is an inscription on the front door of Tersane, which is decorated with the coat of arms of the Sultan Keykubat.
The shipyard operated until 1361. Today Tersane is the most popular tourist attraction in Alanya.
