Again, one of the most striking historical buildings in the region is the walls. We can also say that tourists come to this region regularly to see its walls. Also located in the Alinda Ancient City; the aqueducts, acropolis, theater, necropolis and two temples in the acropolis have survived until today. I recommend you to visit the Alinda Ancient City and see the important historical buildings here.
