Beautiful views

We go there by feet- it's tiring, but views definately worth it. We find beatiful little mosque somewhere on the hill.

This was a great experience. We went by bus to the castle and all I can tell you is fabulously. The remains of the Ottoman Empire, mosques and generally the history of Turkey. The breathtaking view that stretches across the whole of Alanya and only then acquires the real impression of the size of this maritime city, and of course... More

Ticket office will charge 15TL to enter but this is access to only a small fraction of the castle. You can see as much from outside. Stay close to the top for a great sun set.

Well, this is definitely the best place in Alanya. The view from there is simply unforgettable. First of all get a bus from the center and get on top. There is a castle there with some picturesque views. But the best part is on the way down. I suggest to go back by foot, at least half of the way.... More

View from Alanya Castle is something you will never forget. It too hot in summer to go uphill on foot. But there is a bus line that takes you all the way to the top.

The Alanya castle is a set of charming ruins mounting over Alanya city. It's a bit expensive to access, and eating and shopping in the area surrounding it is also pricy, but visiting the castle is interesting and will teach you a bit of Turkish history and give you the chance to enjoy a 360 degree view of Alanya.
