These three windmills overlook the town to Turgutries, located just past the village of Karabağ, which was the birthplace of the great Ottoman Admiral Turgut Reis. This village was built around the 15th Century, and is on a hill overlooking the town, full of tangerine groves, Bougainvillea and steep roads.

The hike to Manara Windmills takes you to an elevation of about ~260 metres, and this vantage point is accessible by car or on foot.
