A beautiful historical castle far away from the bustle of urban Istanbul overseeing the Black Sea. It's a shame that it's not maintained and looked after sensibly (literally 'trashed') but definitely worth a visit nonetheless.

The ruins are pretty minimal, but we enjoyed seeing the Black Sea and had a lovely lunch at a nearby restaurant. This is an easy drive from Istanbul. We took the bus and soaked up lots of local flavor.
