It has since been used as a fortification or a lighthouse.
Kesik(Broken) Minaret is also quite popular in the city because it's kinda trunkated: a fire left no trace of what used to be a Roman temple which later became a Byzantine church and later a mosque. The only thing that survived was Kesik Minaret, hence its fame.
Antalya’s old part is a maze of narrow cobbled streets home to mostly restored houses, the bazaar with its spices and souvenirs, plenty of bars, boutique hotels, and of course some historical artifacts. Strolling along those streets takes you back in time, without leaving you with that awkward, museum-like feel. Antalya old town may have stuck to its original looks, but this part of town is very much alive and ultra-modern when it comes down to eateries or bars. Kaleiçi offers the best of both worlds, and this is precisely the reason why you should visit it during your stay in Antalya.
