It is the largest cave in Turkey to have been inhabited. Some of the finds are on display in the little Karain Museum and others in the Pre-History Section of Antalya Museum.

It was nice not that much to see but interesting to read about. Recommendation is to go in the evening when it is cooler as it is hard to walk up all the stairs in the midday. Bring water as there isn't a shop there....More

These were not among the best caves I've ever been to, but still a nice place to visit if you have the time. The caves are located 1.45 hours outside of Antalya center, so if you aren't interested in archaeology, I wouldn't recommend it. After...More

It was little cold and too much stairs (470 steps), but very nice place to go, didn't think my 2 years old son will like but I was wrong, he really enjoyed the echo of his voice, and as a geologist I enjoyed the Stalagmites...More

This is an interesting cave, consisting of a number of chambers and situated high up above a flat plain. Good steps have recently been built to enable access, but there are a lot of them, I estimate over 400, to climb. It is famous for...More

It's a fair way to drive to get here. The steps up to it are long and arduous. THIS IS NOT SUITABLE IF YOU HAVE WALKING DIFFICULTIES. Make sure you have water with you and maybe a bite to eat at the top. This is...More

This cave has an unbelievably fantastic history but sadly right now that is difficult to perceive. Work is going on around the cave to improve the amenities, but that currently means no museum. As caves go it is pretty, but it's history is what makes...More

This is a fascinating experience. Be prepared for a good climb, but be sure that it is worth it to venture into the caves of the oldest inhabitants of the area. The insides are impressive and you can get a good deal for what it...More

It is a nice place to visit on your way to Termessos. It is well maintained and lighting helps enhance the beauty. No shops or guides at the site but there are ablutions available and people selling soft drinks.

This cave is some around 500.000 years old. It is 30 km. away from the city and in the nortwest suburb of Antalya. It comes from the paleolithic age. I advice you to wear good shoes because you have to climb some around 200 metres....More
