Anamur is the southernmost town on Turkey's Mediterranean coast lying between Antalya and Adana. It has an impressive fortress, uncrowded beaches, and a Byzantine ghost town. The Fortress of Mamure, 7km (4.5 miles) east of the town, was built by the Romans and expanded by the Crusaders. There is a good beach at Iskele southeast of the town centre.
5 km (3 miles) west of the town centre is the Byzantine ghost town of Anamurium. It is an eerie place of semi-ruined stone buildings including churches, public baths, shops, a theatre, a stadium and a necropolis (cemetery). Anamurium was founded by the Phoenicians, flourished under the Romans, but was sacked by the Arabs in the 600s and never recovered.
