Köprülü Canyon – Side – Turkey
National park with a deep canyon
Köprülü Canyon is a canyon and a National Park in the Province of Antalya, Turkey. Covering an area of 366 km2, it was established as a national park by the Ministry of Forest on December 12, 1973.
The canyon is 400 m deep in some places and stretches for 14 km along the Köprü River. There are fish restaurants at the rest area; fresh trout is a specialty. The Roman Oluklu Bridge over a tributary gorge and the Bugrum Bridge over the Kocadere stream were engineering feats of their time.
