This beautiful Ottoman castle is well worth a visit, full of interesting courtyards and nooks and crannies. From the top there is spectacular 360 degree view of the town and out to the Aegean sea. It is well preserved with two large courtyards one of which contains many interestingly carved tombstones. One can imagine the soldiers looking out for the... More

Marvellous views from the top of the castle, and lots to see in the museum. Its ;quite a climb to the top on a hot day but worth it. L:ook out for the wild tortoises too!

It was fairly interesting to see the artifacts but the best bit was taking photographs from the top. The views were amazing.

Not much to add to earlier reviews. It now costs 8TL to get in (closed on Mondays), there is an interesting little museum including a fascinating account of how a British admiral got mixed up in a Turkey-Russia sea battle. But the fort itself is the main attraction, well-preserved with superb views from the walls - you can see why... More

I love how historical is this castle, only too bad was not able to see the whole thing what's inside. Outside view is already interesting. Got some shots somehow.

It costs around 6 or 7 TL to get in and is worth spending an hour or so of your time there. The museum has some mildly interesting artifacts. Inside the castle is a little garden space that had tortoises walking around. The best part is the view at the top. You have an awesome view of all of Cesme... More

I was surprised what I've found in Cesme. You don't expect much from outside but it is a well preserved and nicely reconstructed castle. You get to see a nice marina view from the top. There are several interesting objects inside the castle museum. And the two security - ladies inside the museum area are extremely kind. Serpil and Dilek... More

Truly an impressive location - it looks daunting to climb around from the outside, but its worth the effort for the spectacular views over the harbour.

Historic castle and great views over Cesme when you get to the top of the castle. The castle has a small museum inside which is very interesting
