We took a Taxi to the top of the hill to see the castle. It was a winding trip up the hill, but the view was beautiful and exquisite. Not only that- but We found merchants selling some beautiful needlework embroidery and some baroque pearl necklaces. The souvenirs were at very reasonable prices. You can see the old ships going...

if you go in a hot weather I prefer to catch a taxi to the top of the hill(where the castle is located) and return down to the beach by walking (good small streets and tracks full of cute houses with nice view to the bay are revealed). The hill splits Alanya city into two long bays which can both... More

Really amazing views from the top to bith sides from the mountains. The castle itself is large and worthy to pay around 5 euros (15 liras) to go inside and watch other views

I loved the view from the top. The castle itself is a Really gorgeous and historical place. There is also a mosque very near to the castle which is 500 m away. There are also local shops and markets on the way down from the castle. The best and cheapest way to get there is by bus...as it is much... More

To see the castle and hear the history and enjoy the fantastic view should be a must first time you visit Alanya. Take a taxi or the dolmud up and walk down and enjoy the many small shops with homemade knitting and sewing and lamps from kalabas to good prices, and enjoy the view all the way down. Maybe you...

All alanya is just down of you, beautiful and in the morning and in the evening. You can visit any time of day. Take a deep breath at Muhtarin Yeri, which is a small restaurant with a great great view of Alanya and sea. The place is very close to the real castle, about 5min walking. Recommended!

Took the taxi up to the castle, since a 5 km walk in 40 degrees wasn't so tempting. Getting in to the castle costs 15 Lira per person. The castle is not very impressive from the inside, its mostly ruins and there are basically no info signs, except from the general info about the castle background. The view is amazing... More
