Amazing view of the whole city from the castle. The walk from the city centre up to the castle is amazing. Gives a good pulse of the city

“Nothing memorable, but i love it!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

On the top of the hill the ruins of the caste, and all around a lot of small shops and coffee places. It is really nothing amazing, but i really love that place, the view and the atmosphere...

“A hilltop village in massive walls”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

It is worth the climb up from the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations below, with several routes up and down for pedestrians. There are shops and restaurants within the Citadel walls, as well as many private houses. The stone walls had remnants of Roman inscriptions and sculptures inserted in them. Many streets were being repaired when I was there. The view over Ankara is fine. There were no real antique shops there - although a mile or so to the SE, by the ancient and wonderful Ahielvan Camii there are!

“The Citadel”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

This is a very historical part of Ankara, and was left to deteriorate for many years. That is fortunately changing now, and it is a really nice place to walk around and shop for trinkets and hike along the castle ramparts. There is a beautiful park and some good places for food and coffee.
