Hadrian Castle Gate is a triumphal arch monument situated in Antalya, Turkey. Built-in the name of Hadrian the Roman Emperor, the arch is thought to have been built in 130AD to commemorate Hadrian’s visit. The three-arched marble gate is the only remaining gate of the walls that used to surround Antalya and its harbour; the towers at either side of the gate are thought to have been built in different periods. The gate itself is a symbol of Roman history in the city.
The monumental arch is situated by the city of Antalya’s historic district. The local tram service runs right by the monument, and the closest stop is named ‘Hadrian’.
