  • ALANYA, TURKEY• Is a beach resort city in the Mediterranean Region of Turkey, known as the Turkish Riviera.• Because of its natural strategic position on a small peninsula into the Mediterranean Sea below the Taurus Mountains, Alanya has been a local stronghold for many Mediterranean-based empires, including the Ptolemaic, Seleucid, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. Alanyas greatest political importance came in the Middle Ages, with the Seljuk Sultanate of Rûm under the rule of Alaeddin Kayqubad I, from whom the city derives its name. His building campaign resulted in many of the citys landmarks, such as the Kızıl Kule (Red Tower), Tersane (Shipyard), and Alanya Castle.• The Mediterranean climate, natural attractions, and historic heritage makes Alanya a popular destination for tourism, and responsible for nine percent of Turkeys tourism sector and thirty percent of foreign purchases of real estate in Turkey. Tourism has risen since 1958 to become the dominant industry in the city, resulting in a corresponding increase in city population. Warm-weather sporting events and cultural festivals take place annually in Alanya.• Average Temperatures for September are 30.2C (86.4F) High, 21.2C (70.2F) Low with an average mean of 25.4C (77.7F)1/13/2013 Turkey Lacrosse Association 6
