So much to see

We did not have any great expectations about this place but there was so much to see. A lot of climbing, walking and photographing. Great views when you get to higher ground.

I think nearly everyone will visit the castle for it's history and fabulous views of Alanya. Enroute there are many cafe's for lunch or just a refreshing drink, and just before the castle there are the local markets that trade in fine hand made crafts including excellent needlework.

If you want a break from the slightly sordid town of Alanya with its sleazy ottoman habits and multiple standards, a trip up to the castle would do you good. there are a few craftsmen in the small village but they are far from the pushy and stressful type of the wise-guy merchants in the market at the bottom of...

The view from the castle was amazing and the little village on the mountain was very charming. Great for an afternoon trip!

This place deserves to be #1 attraction in Alanya! It's an ancient castle made by turks to look out for marine invaders. A place to be in Alanya!
