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.

The Alanya Kalesi is situated on top of a mountain which separates the two beaches of Alanya and from the top you have a stunning panoramic view of the whole area.

We went to the Castle and watched the sunset. A local taxi driver took us and showed us around the grounds of the castle which was lovely! Stunning views. Walkable distance from the hotel too.

All to like. Incredible to imagine how it was built as the climb to it is 4 kilometers long up a very steep hill. Very imposing from the beach and town and makes a great photograph , especially in the evening. Excellent views from the castle.
