Antalya Kaleiçi, when it comes to the infrastructure works initiated in the 1990s, the restoration of the houses that have been worn out over time, the new flooring of the streets, the street lighting. Antalya Kaleiçi now attracts the attention it deserves. Until yesterday, people roam its streets, the streets, whose name is not even known, until late hours. They sits in stylish cafes, and many people spend their holidays in carefully restored old Antalya mansions; they accumulate new moments for themselves.
Especially late at night, as can be seen in the photographs, Hesapçı Sokak in Kaleiçi is brilliant. Now tourists prefer to walk trough these narrow streets in the evening while returning to their hotels and people of Antalya to their homes. Kaleiçi has experienced a great change in the past 30 years.

We used to write poems in such cases. Although these are childsh poems; We used to do this in order to explain our never - ending feelings more easily at that time. Now, 40-45 years later, every people from Antalya is full the same geelings as they wander the streets of Kaleiçi.

Even if we are not writing poetry now, every street and neighborhood you walk on is the castle stones you put down while playing a match; The garden wall, which you climbed to play plums or oranges as a child, takes you back years ago. Memories come alive all around you. It seems like a childhood friend will come out around the corner and say, "Let's have a football game."

Kaleiçi, which took me back to childhoodwhile wandering
in its streets, is one of the must-see places in Antalya today with its old houses, gardens and narrow streets, without a doubt.

Most gardens and rockeries are like open air museums. Many antique architectural pieces adorn the gardens of the houses. Roman and Byzantine marble column capitals carry the wooden columns of some of the houses where the residents of Antalya lived until recently. Antique pieces can be seen on the walls of the houses, on the corners and on the doors. Colorful pplant or animal motifs are noteworthy in the bay windows on the facede of the house facing the street.

It is understood from some wooden decoration pleces from the inscriptions that the oldest surviving houses in Antalya Kaleiçi date back to the end of the 19th century.

Large mansions are few in number in Kaleiçi houses. Where the people of Antalya used to live in.

Other houses, on the other hand, consist of large houses with courtyards where patriarchal families can shelter, like houses in other regions of Anatolia or two -storey buildings with two rooms, halls, and sometimes a modest family.

Since the summers are very hot and the winters are warm, the purpose of preventing the sun and providing coolness rather than protection from the cold determines the plan of the house in the constructions of the houses in Kaleiçi. In the summer, the breeze winds blowing from the sea to the land during the day and the soft winds blowing from the east at night and allowing the passage of the winds called "Alitimya" by the people of Antalya constitute the main plan of Kaleiçi.

In addition, shady stony grounds and courtyards, high ceilings that facilitate air flow are the main features of Kaleiçi houses. The abundant use of wood in the houses is due to forest richness of the region.

Even though I no longer live in Kaleiçi, where my childhood passed. I have carried this roaming pleasure for a long time, even into the late night of the remastered and illuminated night. Kaleiçi is now brilliant at night. Thus; Another beauty is added to an existing beauty. Come on, people from Antalya! After the sun goes down, take your children and walk down Hesapçı Sokak form Hadrian's Gate to the Hıdırlık Tower. You will see, you will like it very much. You will agree with me.
