Antalya Alanya Atatürk House Museum
It is the house where Mustafa Kemal Atatürk stayed for a while during his visit to Alanya on February 18, 1935. Alanya Atatürk House was built as a residence by the timber merchant M. Tevfik Azakoğlu and is in the Şekerhane District. After the death of its owner, the house was donated to the Ministry of Culture by Rıfat Azakoğlu and was restored in 1987 and opened to visitors as "Alanya Atatürk House". It is a three-story mansion type, one of the traditional Alanya houses, and a wooden masonry mansion with a two-sided plan. In this plan type, the rooms open to the living room or sofa in the middle.
Although the exact date of construction of the house is not known, it is said that its master was Beyri Usta. The house is entered through a two-winged iron door from the garden entrance on the south side, and the first floor is reached. At the time, the ground floor with an earthen floor was used as a barn and a warehouse. There are five rooms and a trunk room on the first and second floors. The house was built considering the climatic characteristics of Alanya and for comfortable living opportunities. Its front facade overlooks the historical Alanya Castle. This house is a registered building as Immovable Cultural Property to be protected.
