“Amazing views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

The views from the top of Uchisar castle are really unbelievable, and in Cappadocia that's really saying something. Beyond that you can see a few of the interior rooms, but there's not really any signage explaining what you're looking at.

“Breathtaking Panorama”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We walked out to Uchisar Castle from Goreme (~5km). The hike up the town to the castle is rough, but fun. When you reach the summit, you're rewarded with a spectacular view of Goreme, Uchisar, and Cappadocia. The old Roman castle may no longer resemble its glory days, but it offers a unique flavour of the region that is hard to rival. Also, it's hard to look out at the castle from the surroundings and not want to climb it.

Admission is cheap, particularly if you're a student, but don't expect to find any information or signage. We also did not find the site very crowded.

“Uchisar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

Uchisar was a great location if a bit more out of the way. We did not have a car but depended on a guide. The area seemed amazing in its rock formations.
