Adana Mini Guide
There are some very exciting places of interest in the town and you are able to cruise around them in your hire car and visit them at your own leisurely pace.
The first place to visit is perhaps the city's iconic Stone Bridge. This dates back to the times of the Roman Emperor Justinian and from there you are able to get to many other historical places.
Visit the Buyuk Saat which has the tombs of local governors and nearby is the Turkish Bath Carsi Hamami which has a bath that dates to the year 1519.
Ramazangolu Palace has been converted into a cultural centre and is well worth a visit.
Ulu Cami is a mosque that was built in the same period while another worthwhile visit is to the Antaki Mosque. Accommodating 18,500 people at prayer time, is the Sabanci Merkez Camii which is the largest mosque in Turkey.
Relax in the Merkezpark not far from the mosque and enjoy the Chinese Garden as well as the amphitheatre. Discover the history of Adana by visiting the Archaeological Museum that has famous works such as Achilles Sarcophagus which depicts the Trojan War, the Augustus statues from the Hittite period and statues from the ancient cities of Magarsus and Augusta.
Another museum that is popular is the Misis Museum which you can reach in your hire car by travelling to the west bank of the Seyhan River. There is a mosaic depicting Noah and the Ark which is well preserved.
- Adana has lost some of its cultural identity so if you're there this summer, get out of the city and into the local villages, where you'll regularly see the dances, storytelling and music of Anatolia.
