This is a nice little castle in Cesme, with accurate historical information and neatly kept. It's clean and tidy; most people go to Cesme for the sea and the small Mediterranean town experience, but this is a little extra for those interested in history. Don't...More

The three best things about the castle is its very central location (can easily be combined with shopping at the high street or pier), the low price and the breathtaking views you can see from the top of the castle. Also the castle has an...More

The castle is very interesting, a must-see if you go to Cesme since the rest of the town isn't that interesting. You can have a walk on the inside and on the top for some amazing views of the city and fortress.

Must see attraction in the centre of Çeşme. Only 8 liras, no photo restrictions, no dress code. Great museum and even better view. Careful with small children, there are some unguarded steps and gaps. Definitely worth a visit.
