The great basalt antique citywalls of Diyarbakir surround a city of many mosques packed on a rather small area. You can spend about two days here easy by just going to the tourist office in Kultur Sarayi and ask for a map showing you the mosques and other places of interest.

Diyarbakir is probably the most important city in the south east of Turkey. From this place onwards you can travel to most important places in eastern Turkey using dolmus minivans or taking long the more comfortable and suitable bus. Also this place is a alternative stop instead of Antakya near the south coast for travellers coming out or going to Syria.
