“The perfect place to sit and watch the sun set over the Aegean...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The Kusadasi Castle is currently under some major renovation plan by the Turkey Government. İt has always been one of my favourite places to sit and meditate or just enjoy the sensational views of the Aegean and the Turkish coastline in and around Kusadasi and the nearby Greek Island of Samos....

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Just saw it from the outside as it looked there was not much left off it but just helped to tick the box and learnt a brief history of it.

“Great views over the city, nice garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I enjoyed the walk down the promenade, then along the harbour to the castle. The first thing was the garden - numerous different trees and flowers. Just a great combination with the stones. The castle itself was locked, you could only peep through the door. But I very much enjoyed the view to open sea, to the centre of the city and towards Ladies Beach. It is only there that you realize how beautiful the coastline is and how varied.
You could sit and watch for hours.
It is well worth spending an hour, just to have a look at Kusadasi from the other side. Quite different from the view from a hotel, I think.
I have noticed numerous pieces of paper placed on several trres aroud a garve. The locals explained they were placed by people who had a wish to make, hoping their wish will come true. I don't know if this is right, but it told me something about the locals that I did not know before.

“Nice rest stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Would be nicer if they opened the castle. Beautiful vistas, away from the crowds, nice place to stop...and people, pay the person for use of the washrooms!
