The last time we visited a "guide" chased us around the site and even followed us to Yazilikaya (a nearby site). This time there just a few mostly friendly guys selling carved soapstone. The ruins and the surrounding countryside are beautiful and definitely worth the...More

Read about the Hittites but was amazed that we were actually here. Even though the place is in ruins, it is still very fascinating. A model of the castle is erected at the entrance, so one can just imagine what the whole place was like...More
