I really enjoyed myself here mainly because I have a strong interest in the Turkish war of independence of which Gaziantep played a key role. If you are not interested in history, there is still magnificent views over the city. The castle has been very restored nicely and effort has been made to ensure all exhibits have an English written description

It is very nice to walk on the top of this castle and view the old city around, with beautiful looking mosques, minarets, old hans and houses. The castle itself is nice enough. It is a very nice place to take wonderful photos.

The old "Han"s and Basars in the city center are very beautiful, so take some time to stroll through Zeytin Han, Zincirli Bedesten, Tütün Han, etc. You can watch the production of beautiful copperplates, saddles, find a lot of antiques and just enjoy the atmosphere, maybe have some local coffee like Menengüc
