General description: Kızıl Kule (Red Tower)

The Red Tower is one of the most recognizable symbols of Alanya (in Turkey). The tower was built in 1225 under the request of the Sultan Alaeddin Keykubada. The monument is represented on the flag of the city of Alanya. The tower is also known as the "Kizil kule". Its name has its origins in the red brick which was used for its construction of the upper parts of the tower.
