Inscription. English:
This place belongs to "The Foundation of the Sons and Servants of Great Turkish Admiral Hayrettin (Barbarossa) Pasha." The sailors of the Pasha were resting here without losing sight of the sea. In the XVI Century, one of the biggest fires utterly ruined these buildings. Fifteen wooden houses built afterwards, were overthrown in 1986. The Armada Hotel was built in 1994 with the restoration project which kept the original facade of the building under the supervision of the General Directorate of Foundations of The Prime Ministry of Turkish Republic.

Turkish:
