The Alanya Kalesi is situated on top of a mountain which separates the two beaches of Alanya and from the top you have a stunning panoramic view of the whole area.

We went to the Castle and watched the sunset. A local taxi driver took us and showed us around the grounds of the castle which was lovely! Stunning views. Walkable distance from the hotel too.

All to like. Incredible to imagine how it was built as the climb to it is 4 kilometers long up a very steep hill. Very imposing from the beach and town and makes a great photograph , especially in the evening. Excellent views from the castle.

Alanya Castle, red tower has fabulous views of the bay and surrounding areas - you have to judge whether the views make the long walk up to the castle worthwhile - the catle is mainly ruins - there are two separate sites which are covered by the cost of a single ticket (15TL) - however the second site is another...
