Took a bus from the bottom and arrived well at the top after 10 minutes. Stunning view from outside the castle, so we decided to pay the 15 TL per person to get inside. No doubt the view is even more fantastic from here, but walking through the little area took us about 15 minutes inclusive all the photos, so... More

We took a bus up there to the castle. The view from the castle is simply amazing! There is also an ancient Byzantine church inside the ruined walls. Otherwise there's not a lot of see, besides the amazing view and ruins. The atmosphere up there is really dreamy and just perfect. On the way up you can also buy pretty... More

the scenery is fantastic, you have a panoramic view of Alanya and Alanya Harbour. Unfortunately working on the restoration of part of the city in the area access is denied. But for those who go in alanya city must necessarily go on. the panoramic is superb.

We walked all the way up to the castle. The best part of that trip was waking and everything we saw on our way. Wiev's we're beautiful, but castle itself was a bit disappointment.

The view from the top of the hill was unbelievable. We got a view of the whole of Alanya. We didn't go in to the castle as it wasn't wheelchair friendly.

If you are not really good sport man , take a bus (number 4) or taxi to castle , because it really long way. The castle it self is nothing special , couple ruined walls, but the view on both side of hill are amazing and it worth it to go there and take a nice picture of Cleopatra beach... More

I wouldn't walk all the way up the narrow road to the castle on a dare. Not sure how far it is, but way too much elevation gain for me. We took a taxi (60TL round-trip) with an amiable driver who made a couple of requested stops for us on the way back down the hill. Castle admission itself is... More

Can get easy with a car, not so much to see inside but the view of the port, the beaches and the whole city of Alanya is great.
