“A real Crusder Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2007

Mamure Castle is located on the southernmost tip of Turkey a six hour bus ride from ANTAYLA. The bus ride there is beautiful with incredible views. A taxi from the bus depot to the castle cost about 5YTL. The castle stands imposing nestled between the higway and the mediterranean sea. Once you cross the moat and enter the castle its majesty will awe you. You can cimb the battlements of old and marvel at the dexterity of men trying to do this in full body armour. The day we were there we had the place to ourselves and we wandered around as we pleased clambering here there and everywhere admiring the craftsmenship of old imagining ourselves here in that time. We are re-enactors of course. The castle is in incredibly good condition given th neglect it has been through do not expect a castle like Engand where everything is lovingly cared for but it is well worth it. This castle and the area around are of the beaten track but well worth the day we had the most incredible experience, we stayed at a very cheap hotel across the road, the room was not great or the bed or bathroom but the people and the food were fantastic.
