Beautifull view and worth the trip up there.

We were driven up the mountain by a local. The entrance fee for the actual castle is 7 lira per person but we were told the view is the same outside the castle so we didnt go... read more

It's very small castle and there are not lots of things to see. If you want to see the beautiful scene of Alanya and want to take pictures, go for it.

Amazing views! The general suggestion is to ask the taxi to take you to the very top and then just have a walk down, and down, and down again :) All in all, including one thousand photos you make on your way, should take about an hour to reach the city level. Several restaurants on the way, plus ladies selling... More

Well preserved medieval castle, a must-see in Alanya. Watch out the steep path leading to the castle. The view from the top is very beautiful, recommended especially during the evening.

Best views are from the big platform about half way round the walking route - you can see the whole of Cleopatra Beach and most of the eastern side of the peninsula on which the castle stands. Normally,... More
