The foundations of this structure were laid by Galatians and eventually completed by the Romans. Located atop a hill in the old city, the area inside the citadel contains many fine examples of traditional architecture.

If you go there after 9 pm, there is nobody, really strange and a bit scary. In the daytime, there are bazaars with local people and some souvenir shops. Go off the main streets and you will see rather decayed housing. Old town.
A very beautiful view opens up on Ankara from the top of the Citadel. Stones for the construction of the walls were taken from the ruins of other buildings, so if you carefully examine the Citadel, you can find blocks with antique inscriptions.
An old town atmosphere and excellent renovation efforts around this landmark make it an interesting location to visit. Yet, please do not drive your own car to this location. Take a cab and then walk around without any traffic worries.
