Limyra Bridge – One of the Oldest Bridges in the World

Kirkgöz Arch, which was called the Limyra Bridge in Roman times, is one of the oldest bridges in the world. It is located within the borders of Hasyurt Neighborhood, which is connected to the Finike district of Antalya province. It is built on the ancient Limyra Alakir brook. The bridge, which has a length of 360 meters, has the feature of a stone bridge.

The bridge, which consists of 26 arches, has a very flat appearance thanks to these arches. Although the bridge is seen as very important thanks to this appearance, the bridge is little known in Turkey.

There is not much information about the bridge in Antiquity. If you are interested in ancient historical buildings, you can visit this bridge. You can also visit the Limyra Ancient City Theatre, which is very close to the bridge. If you want to get more detailed information about the theater, you can take a look at our article on the Ancient City of Limyra on our website.


I have been living in Antalya since 2018. I have had the opportunity to explore many tourist attractions in the city. I write about places to visit, things to do, and various topics I have learned. You can ask your questions through the website. If you have previously visited Antalya, you can contribute by sharing your experiences on the website.
