Two castles you must visit in Cappadocia are Uchisar and Ortahisar. Both of them are amazing with a slight advantage of Uchisar imo.
Uchisar castle is a short 10-15 min drive from Goreme. It's an amazing sight seen even from a distance, and while you're driving becoming more and more spectacular as you approach.
Climbing it requires your good abilities with steps, uneven terrain, narrow passages, etc...but worth every effort as the views from top are amazing.
It is not included in the Museum Pass, but I really cannot understand people (specially westerners) here complaining on couple Euros fee, as everything here is so cheap, much less than it'd cost in Europe or US.

Quite pretty view and visit for the Unique landscape...
And old Castle to defense the city for sudden attacks. The museum entrance fee is quite cheap and provided at the entrance ticket sale office..

The panaromic views and picturesque caves leave you breathless. The sights were amazing and the town overall beautiful.
It was stepping back into time against a winter wonderland as the backdrop.
A definite must if visiting Turkey.

Castle looks cool from afar and up close. But the entrance fee is a compete rip off, maybe the ticket prices have been raised due to covid and less tourists. The views from up top are great but you can basically get those views without paying to go up. And there is no info about the castle inside.

You can photograph it for free from one of the many terraces along the road. Going up is 15 TL per person. It's not a hard climb but the view honestly isn't as good as just sipping on some tea and admiring it from afar.

The astounding castle inside the stone. Be prepared for climbing with extraordinary stature. Convey water bottles. Your visit guide may not give time for climbing yet you should approach him for that. Its take around 1 hr to go up and 1 hr back.

The Uchisar Castle rises up over the Cappadocia plain and is visible for miles in any direction. Fabulous concentration of buildings and houses built around the towering castle hill. Great for morning photography if you can get the sun to your back.

Nice visit if your hotel is near, for half hour, I wouldn’t take time to travel there if not.

You get what you pay for, one information paragraph and a bit of a better view from the top. Average but recommend if walking past.

Amazing view from top!!! You can go all the way of this castle by going up staircase along the outside wall. It is quite far up, but once you reach top of castle, you will be rewarded by the amazing view. Any direction of view is very photogenic.

It really wear me out, but happy I went all the way up.

It is not part of museum pass, so you need to get separate ticket.

Since the unfortunate death of a tourist who fell whilst taking a photo, this is just a photo opportunity between the cameras of lots of other tourists
