Only visit if you are fit and time your visit for either early in the morning or late afternoon as there are a lot of stairs to climb and no shade. Well worth the climb for the amazing view from the top.

The Castle (note - closed on Mondays) is a well preserved and restored piece of history. The castle also houses a small museum which gives an interesting (if slightly incoherent) overview of the significance of Cesme and its conflicted history. I knew nothing of the Russian naval battle at Cesme, for example - and this was very interesting. There are... More

Seems to be one of the only things to do in Cesme. Well worth a visit. Only costs 8 Turkish Lira to get in, and you could easily spend an hour or 2 looking around inside the castle and museum.

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
