Small admission fee gets you access to climb up to the top of this castle. Most of the inside is closed off so you walk up outside. Our day was a bit chilly and even a couple snow flurries so that may have detracted from the experience.

Very nice place to access sweeping views across the Cappadocia Region of Turkey. It is one of the highest view points in the area and you can see everything. The climb to the top of the castle is easy. At the front there is vendors selling beautiful dried fruits and nuts. There are a number of tourist shops at the... More

No need to place stones to build a castle, lets just carve it to a mountain! This castle suits so much to Cappadocia. Dont try to visit the place with a stroller or a very small uncontrollable kid, since to climb the castle you need to walk around the outerside and a child could easily breakfree and fall down.

very old, many caved rooms, floors, view. Surrounded by many ceramis shops. Hard to climb, but once you reach to the top, very relaxing.

Having this place in front of my hotel, it would be shame for me not to climb up. Entrance fee was only TL6 I think and the view from the top is amazing. You can see different contour and colours of Kapadokya and the climb up is not too steep and long.

Honestly there isn't much to do here. The castle itself is remarkable though. Thinking of enemies trying to attack this structure... Good luck. There's some merchants here but this is a quick stop for some nice pictures.

This imposing rock is the landmark of Uchisar.The multitude of caves and excavations gives an idea of the specific character of Cappadocia.The view of the valley is superb and the hotels situated at its foot have rooms half under the mountain and half overlooking the valley.

Nice landmark not worth paying to get in! There are other mountains and dwellings to see and this one doesn't give any added value for what you pay.

I recently visited Cappadocia for a 4 days trip. I was staying at Goreme and went to Uchisar village by the local bus (dolmus bus). The Uchisar Castle was by far the most impressing site that I visited. I recommend it!!!!

Interesting site. It is made of rock. The exterior appearance is plain and ugly, unlike the usual castles that you will see in Europe. (well, if love rock formations or gothic art like, you will appreciate its beauty) No antiques and royal furnitures inside. Watch out because the ladder is very steep and narrow. And the rewarding part is the... More
