We took a taxi up from the harbor. The walk up and down looks beautiful but would take us 3-4 hours. Taxi asked 15TL (we where 5 people) and we agreed on 4 €. The way up is amazing with great view and cool shops. The castle it self is nice and well maintained with amazing views.

In the Castle itself is not much to see, unless you have a good tourist guide with you, who can tell you about the place. But on the way down, the view down on Alanya harbor is fantastic. You can walk serveral roads, I like to take some backroads and discover new things every time. Still on the lookout for... More

Fisrt of all, I've seen a lot of people say don't try to walk up here. While that may be true for older people, and the generally less mobile, I think if you're reasonably fit it's not too much of a struggle, and really heightened the experience. I should mention that I went in April though, so in mid Summer... More

We did not have any great expectations about this place but there was so much to see. A lot of climbing, walking and photographing. Great views when you get to higher ground.

I think nearly everyone will visit the castle for it's history and fabulous views of Alanya. Enroute there are many cafe's for lunch or just a refreshing drink, and just before the castle there are the local markets that trade in fine hand made crafts including excellent needlework.

The view was beautiful but it was a waste of money as it is in disrepair and there is little to learn or read about the castle.

If you want a break from the slightly sordid town of Alanya with its sleazy ottoman habits and multiple standards, a trip up to the castle would do you good. there are a few craftsmen in the small village but they are far from the pushy and stressful type of the wise-guy merchants in the market at the bottom of...
