Titus Rock Tunnel

Titus Rock Tunnel

Hatay, the city of civilizations, brings the dominance of the Roman Empire centuries ago to the present day with striking details of the past. At this point, perhaps the most interesting and innovative structures in the region are the Titus Kaya Tunnel. It would not be wrong to call titus rock tunnel far ahead of the age of engineering product. More than 2,000 years ago, this tunnel was planned to protect the port area of Seleucia Pieira, an ancient city that flourished in the region more than 2,000 years ago, from floodwaters coming from the surrounding elevations and caused damage. The rocks were drilled, tons of materials were loaded and moved, and eventually a hollow with a length of about 1 km and a width of 6 meters was carve out. The Titus Rock Tunnel was the product of an astonishing effort to sustain trade. The historic tunnel, built and named after it by The Successor to the Roman Emperor Vespasian, can be visited today. It can walk in the astonishing historical hollow. It is recommended to go with suitable shoes due to slippery and wet floor. The historic Titus Tunnel can be visited within certain hours in summer and winter. It's usually closed to visitors before dusk. Good discoveries!
