[TR] Güvercinada Kuşadası kentine adına vermiş ve simgesi olmuştur. Üzerinde bulunan iç kale Kuşadası limanını korumak için inşa edilmiştir. Adanın ortasındaki 15.5 x 17.5 m. boyutlarındaki iç kalenin Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa tarafından 16. yy'da yeniden yaptırıldığı bazı kaynaklarda ifade edilse de ilk yapım tarihi ile ilgili kesin bir veri yoktur. Adanın etrafını çeviren surlar ise kale kapısının sağ üstünde yer alan kitabenden anlaşıldığına göre Sığla Sancağı mütesellimi İlyas Ağa tarafından 1826 yılında yaptırılmıştır. İnşa için geekli taşlar karşıdaki Yılancı Burnu'ndan getirilmiştir. Güvercinada 1960 yıllarda bir mendirek ile karaya bağlanmış ve kale restore edilmiştir. Kalenin son restorasyonu 2012 - 2015 yılları arasında yapılmıştır.
