It's the best place into the city center which you can ever visit. You can take taxi or bus to the top of mountain and meet there mysterious hystorical castle with the spectacular view of the full city.

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
