1. Stone Bridge
On a sunny Saturday. As you know, I’m a man who can escape from the disgusting and dirty air of Istanbul, as you know, I am a man in his job, we leave the hotel and go to the famous stone bridge, which is our first stop.
The Stone Bridge, which is built on the Seyhan River, is the oldest bridge in the world open to vehicle traffic and was built by the Romans in the 2nd century.

This bridge, which originally had 21 eyes, seems to have 14 eyes today due to the fact that its land is filled with stones. Weather is nice. The view created by the Seyhan River and the Adana Central Mosque behind it on the Seyhan River is indescribable.
2. Ulu Mosque (Ramadanogullari Mosque)
After crossing the bridge, we proceed towards the historical district. This place is known as the old city area. Ulu Mosque, one of the most important structures left behind by the Ramazanoğulları, a very important civilization in this region, is the next stop.

The mosque, which was completed in 1541, is a structure that has preserved its historical texture and smell with its walls and architecture.
3. Ramazanoğlu Madrasa
We pass to the madrasah, which is right across the mosque. The peaceful garden of Ramazanoğlu Principality and its beautiful courtyard to sit and rest are worth seeing.
Like us, if you get the chance, you can come across the young people playing the ney instrument inside, find peace and relax under the trees in the garden.
4. Historical Clock Tower (Great Clock)
After exiting the madrasah, we immediately head to the left. On the right we see a tomb. It was the tomb of Ziya Pasha. They are the first governor of Adana. After paying our respects, crossing the square, comes the 32-meter-high clock tower, which we see right in front of us.
Great Clock Tower-Adana
It is a tower that started to be built in 1881 and was completed within a year and opened to service in 1882. By the way, it was the tallest clock tower in Turkey. We pass the clock tower and head to the famous earnings bazaar right behind it.
5. Historical Kazancilar Bazaar
The place where the clock tower is located is actually the city’s bazaar. Kazancılar bazaar, located in this very region, is one of the places that can be an example for our old, historical bazaars, where there are shops that manufacture and repair copper and boilers, as the name suggests.
Kazancilar Bazaar-Kebab Eaten on the Street
Don’t expect such a big place, my friend. There are shops on the left and right, that’s all. While you’re here, eat Adana wrap. Believe me, they are more successful than many restaurants. For some reason, I always liked the food sold on the street more. Being a backpacker is in our soul.
6. Adana Ethnography Museum
By disappearing from Kazancılar bazaar and Adana bazaars, “E is not possible without a museum!” Adana Ethnography Museum is our next stop. He came to his door and said, “I wonder where is the museum. This is the church you know!” While saying that, we later learned that this building, which was originally used as a church, has been used as a museum since 1924.
Inside, items belonging to the nomads living in Çukurova villages and the Taurus Mountains were exhibited. I speak from “Muş” because we could not enter. It was closed. I thought I’d write it in case it might be open when you go.
7. Bebekli Church
Let me warn you first. Closed on Sunday. Open Saturday. We went to the door but could not enter. We go to Bebekli Church by walking about 10 minutes from Kazancılar bazaar. You mean baby? Let me explain: Bebekli Church, St. An Italian Catholic church built in the name of Paul.

The peculiarity of this place is that the 2.5-meter bronze statue of the Virgin Mary, which is located on the church, is likened to a baby, and its name remained as the “Bebekli Church”. This is everything.
8. Atatürk Park-Ziyapaşa-Gazipaşa and Atatürk Streets
We want to leave the oldest part of the city and see some new parts. There are all kinds of cafes, restaurants and entertainment centers along these streets and Atatürk park in the area up to Adana Station.
There are plenty of luxury shops and cafes on Ziya Pasa Street. Nice area for shopping. In fact, if you want to have 2 glasses of something in the evening, bars and pubs are always in these regions. Especially on weekends, you can have an alternative.
9. Adana Central Park
After wandering around the city center for a while, we now want to rest and breathe. When I can’t see water in a city, it always seems like something is missing.
Maybe it has become a habit because I am from Fethiye. I do not know ! Fortunately, there is the Seyhan river in Adana and the entire riverside is green.

10. Sabanci Central Mosque
Sabancı Merkez Mosque, located right on the banks of the Seyhan River, is known as the largest mosque in Turkey and the Middle East, and offers a pleasant view by the river with its 6 minarets, 99 meters high.

11. Archaeological Museum
Our next stop is the Archeology Museum, one of the 10 oldest museums in our country, but we do not enter. I think it was under renovation.
I thought I’d tell you, in case you get a chance to see it when you go. In the Archeology Museum, which was built just one year after the proclamation of the Republic, there are the Hittite Gate lion, inscriptions and sarcophagi.
