The Turquoise Coast Sights

Fodor's Review

North of Arykanda, the mountain town of Elmalı is the center of the country's apple (elma) industry. Although a glimpse of traditional Turkey and the cool mountain air are the main draws, Elmalı is also known for its traditional, half-timber houses and the Ömer Pasha mosque (1602), which is one of the best Ottoman mosques in southern Turkey. Several important pre-classical sites have been excavated in the area, and a hoard of nearly 2000 coins from the 5th century BC,

called the "Treasure of the Century" was unearthed near here. Most finds are now in the Antalya Museum, but a small museum, Elmalı Müzesi, opened here in 2011 (9–2, closed Monday).
