The castle sits in the heart of downtown with plenty to see and do in the area. It gives you a great feel for Turkish culture with shops, metal workers, food etc in the area. The castle is certainly a site to see but the only bummer for us was that it is undergoing a major restoration project right now and we weren't allowed to enter. I think when it is done it is going to be incredible to look at just like all the other castles that are scattered around Turkey.

Claimed to be build 6000 years ago Castle of Gaziantep would be an iconic landmark of the city if restored and kept well. The castle is now in a terrible condition and some parts of it need reconstruction.

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.
