HAMAKSIA ANCIENT CITY
Not much is known about this ancient city. Perhaps it has benefitted it the preservation of its relics, as it is not a popular tourist position. Hamaksia Ancient City is located just out of Antalya, 6kms from Alanya City. It has however been a slowly growing summer vacation destination because of its relics. It is also a point of interest for those looking to spend a vacation that isn’t at the sea but travelling back in time. The city lies among the wild growth of pine trees and grass but still not hard to walk through. You can wander and wonder what the city once was while you walk through the ancient fountains, swimming pools, the rows of ancient stone seats are some of the most important remains of the necropolis. Examine up close the Hellenistic features up-close on these well-preserved relics. Take a seat at any of the stone seats and enjoy the serenity of the area. Hamaksia is one of the most important ruins of the ancient city remains of Byzantine and Roman era.
