A 13th-century architectural masterpiece and landmark, Kizilkule is considered the symbol of the city of Alanya--as evidenced by its incorporation into the city's flag. Built in 1221 under the sultan's orders to protect the shipyard, the octagonal, Seljuk-style structure stands 33 m (108 ft) high and 12.5 m (41 ft) wide.
