Tetrapyrgia (Ancient Greek: Τετραπυργία, 'four towers') was a town of the Roman province of Pamphylia (clustered around a central part of Turkey's southern Mediterranean coast). It was near the coast and inhabited in Roman times.[1]

Its site is east of contemporary settlement Limnae. It was useful for trading goods from Asiatic Turkey (Anatolia).[1][2]
