Nice and well maintained castle offers a nice afternoon (don't go there in the middle of the summer day, it's too hot) trip and excellent view on Alanya. But be AWARE of opening hours - they close when there is the best time for wandering around - at 7PM.

If you are very fit you can climb up to the castle, but a taxi or car is an easier option! Fantastic views when you get there.

You get one of the most beautiful views over Alanya city and the coastal line if you visit the castle

This place is amazing. Cleopatra once looked out to sea from here. I must admit I was a little scared to get so close. You need good walking shoes to walk around. Its better to go with a guide or a local. Someone who can tell you some of the history of this amazing place. Wouldn't recommend going here if... More

Got a taxi to top, went into castle for views and then walked down. No, there isn't a great deal to see of the castle but the views from inside the walls are worth the pittance of an entry fee. Only thing to watch is getting ripped off in the little shop outside ticket office. £4 for 2 small waters... More

Nothing to see in the castle , But the Panoramic views are fantastic. Not worth the entry fee, nothing to see within the walls of the Castle

I recommend you take a taxi and ask for a round trip price for going up to the castle and then seeing the sights. We found a nice taxi driver who was with us for an hour for 60 Lira. He showed us the places and we managed to see everything there was to see in an hour. The castle... More
