Despite this, it is rumored that the bridge is 1800 years old in some sources. The bridge has a large arch approximately ten meters in diameter. It is thought that the bridge was named Hercules because the Statue of Hercules is 2 km away. Hercules statue is exhibited in Alanya museum.

Right next to the bridge, there is also a restaurant serving as an indoor and outdoor area. If you wish, you can visit this historical bridge with your family and spend a pleasant time in the restaurant and picnic area right next to it.
