Owner description: A historical site not to be missed. Just off Atatürk Boulevard you’ll see the impressive three double arches of the gates, which were erected in 130 to celebrate the visit of Emperor Hadrian. Legend has it that in ancient times, the queen of Sheba passed through the middle arch on her way to Aspensos and spent a happy night with King Salomon. With the exception of the columns, the arch is made from white marble and is richly decorated.

“Atmospheric”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Well worth visiting as part of a look around the old town. Impressive architecture, but you need to mentally block out the hustle and bustle of the nearby modern roads to appreciate the history

“A Piece of History”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Easy to miss, this can be reached after wandering up the cobbled streets from the old harbour back to the city centre. Small in size, it's been well preserved and worth a visit.

“Nice to see but not much there”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This is worth looking at if you are in the area but no need for a special trip. There is not much there other than the start of the markets but it's a nice building.

“Close By Old Town Hotels”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Takes a few minutes to view. A pic or 2 and you are done. If staying in the old city you will go past and thru it many times.

“Ruined by salesmen”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

One could easily miss the fact they just walked through it. Taxi drivers and merchants sitting everywhere, exposing their merchandise, trying to sell you things... it's not a cultural monument anymore.
