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.

I managed to get some amazing photos here. It was just stunning even though it was extremely hot. Have a designated photo friend or ask people to take a pic... Selfie sticks are useless.

We took great pictures of the surrounding views from here of the town and Greek island across the water. Liked the lion statue in front.

Good to visit to see sun rise or sun set from the top and great views over Cesme across to Chios island.

Worth the steep climb to get the best views over the town and across to Chios. Small museum and often art displayed inside.
