I had been walking up to the gate of the Castle almost daily for a bit of exercise & was impressed with the size of the Castle. However once inside we were dissappointed. There isn't a great deal to see inside although the view from inside the castle grounds are impressive.

Very cozy historical place. Comfortable for walks and safe. Many different fruit trees all over. Very beautiful views while climbing up the hill and air humidity changing. Most important is the view from the lookout. You can get there by bus, taxi and walking. I recommend taking an evening walk up and the bus during the day.

You cannot Come in Alanya and not visit the Castle. You have a fabulons panoramic view on Alanya. There is a Nice Walk to do above, a beautiful mosque and a cimetery up There to see and visit (please wear a trouser or long skirt to be respectful of the place). You have typical anciens houses and a few shops.... More

It's a steep climb to the castle but u can get a taxi unfortunately in August although temps in 30's it feels like mid to high 40's plus unbearable humidity... Not to self never come in August again Personally I much preferred Bodrum superior castle amphitheatre and mausoleum plus a more compact city easier to get around

The ruins are awesome and the views are breathtaking. This is a must see in Alanya. Accessible by foot and taxi. A small fee for entrance, and very nice cafes, small bistros.

We hiked up the hill to Alanya castle. It was a hot trip and it is best to do in the morning. Views were great all the way up. But the best views to the turquoise sea and the city were from the castle. You should come here if you visit Alanya.
