Behramkale village is an old village found during the Ottoman Empire. While the ancient city faces to the sea, the village faces the opposite direction. The village attracts the attention by being built inside the ancient walls. It consists of only 150 houses. As it is a protected site for the last 30 years, it is forbidden to built new houses; only the existing houses are restored.

It is possible to see beautiful examples of stone works of Assos. There are pansions, hotels and restaurants in the village, in which it is a pleasure to spend time due to their views and historical atmosphere.  The gate of Assos Ancient City is situated on the top of the hill. A stone slope reaches to the gate. When you enter the gate you reach Temple of Athena. On this slope which leads to the ruins, you can see villager women selling home-made food and souvenirs; herbs, olive oil, home-made tarhana or hand-made laces and shawls can decorate the stands. Also, inside the village, there is a mosque and a bridge built during the Ottomans:

Hüdavendigar Mosque

Hüdavendigar Mosque was built in the 14th century by Ottoman Emperor Murat Hüdavendigar the 1st. The mosque, which is an authentic Ottoman architecture, has single minaret and has a square plan. The mosque is situated inside the ancient city walls, on the hill. Trireme pictures inside the mosque are not a usual site for Ottoman mosques. The door of the Mosque is actually the gate of Cornelius city. The scripture which had been written by King Skamandros, who had restored Cornelius Church, were left untouched, but only the two sides of the cross on the door are broken. The scripture by the king is as follows: 
Anthimos, the president of Skamandros city, restored the broken parts of St. Cornelius Church keenly and laboriously to beautify it while praying willfully for his sins to be forgiven. Whomever looks atthe beauties, the situation, the mosaics and the marvelous grandeur of this church, (I wish) he prays for the pardon of the sins of Anthimos, who had been a liege to God and who had had this church built before his death.

Hüdavendigar Bridge

It is another monument built  again in the 14th century by Murat Hüdavendigar the 1st. It is situated over the Tuzla Creek. The coves of the bridge are still intact and carries its original beauty. Naturally the road part has been restored many times. As a new bridge was made for car traffic, the bridge is only used by pedestrians. We suggest that you walk on this 600 year old bridge.
