WHAT TO DO IN ADANA
The city’s most prominent feature is the beautiful Merkez Camii Mosque, which sits along the water’s edge and serves as the backdrop to the cityscape. Built in 1998, the mosque is relatively new, but its size and architectural beauty make it a true emblem of the city. The Merkez Camii Mosque is absolutely breathtaking and the enormous park surrounding it only adds to its grandeur. Spend an afternoon walking down to the river’s edge, taking pictures of this incredible mosque from every angle. Walking through the narrow and winding streets of Old Adana, visitors can get a sense of the layers of history the city holds. The Clock Tower, built in the Ottoman era, is the central feature of the Old Souk. Though impressive in height, it is the old market surrounding the Clock Tower that really sets the tone in this historic area.
