İki Kapılı Han(Historical bazaar and Kervansaray)

The ‘İki Kapılı Han’(covered bazaar), when translated means the ‘Inn or caravansarai with two entrances’ was once a centre of trade for aromatic spicies, fruits, vegtables and vibrant silks and fabrics in the 14th century. The once derelict cluster of buildings has recently been restored and is now a trading hub of the modern kind. The İki Kapılı Han is open daily from: 10.00 until midnight (during the summer) with no siestas.

Brass and copper craftsman’s market.
Tucked behind the İki Kapılı han is the Brass and coppersmith’s craftman’s market. The location is stil the same however, the craftman’s have been tastefully re-housed in modern workshops, without compromising the integrity of the skilled craftman’s traditions and workmanship. This amazing landmarked is very easily overlooked by the many thousands of tourists who visit the historic old town. We strongly recommend you take a slight deviation of just a matter of a few yards to witness these skilled craftsman within close proximity to Antalya Kaleiçi.
