4.4/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web
A medieval castle built high atop a hill, Alanya Kalesi (Castle) now serves as an open-air museum. The castle was constructed mostly in the 13th century on the remains of former fortifications from the Byzantine and Roman eras. Built on a rocky peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea, the castle stands 250 m (820 ft) high and offers an unmatched view of the bay and the surrounding area. Make the long trek up, or jump in a taxi to reach the ruins of the massive castle, whose protective wall extends 6.5 km (4 mi), and which includes 140 towers. The site itself lacks a lot of historical information, so hire a local guide if you wish to learn more.

  • Every year we run a day to the Castle, this is a really nice walk, along the way, many taxi's you ask if they have to drive your way up, but for whom good Walker, is this easy to do. Along the route komje many stalls against where my native stuff can buy, there are also sites where one can eat and drink something, on top is the Castle, we would like to pay an entrance fee to within one.

  • Alanya castle got an amazing location and best views in Alanya , You can enjoy nice clicks and view the city of Alanya totally But there is not much to see or experience inside the castle area. 
  • If you are not in hurry I recommend walking up to the castle and enjoying photogenic scenery on the way. There are many restaurants on the way, so you can buy water on the way. Castle itself is more impressive from outside, but I am happy that I went inside (and supported maintenance of a cultural heritage).
  • Really it's amazing trip and double amazing view from the top of the ocean I want to tell all adventure travelers how much important to assign alanya city in there map plan. Really it's amazing historically and dreamily city. Such as you can find a lot of activity. Also a lot of trip you can enjoy it. And you will not miss any deacons of the trip. I try I'm my trip : boot trip, cave diving, swimming under the mountain, parachuting from the mountain and jeep safari trips. Also there are a lot and a lot ,,,, انها منطقة رائعة ،، و انصح جميع محبي المغامرة بأن لا تفوتهم هذه الرحلة
  • The walk up to the castle is quite nice so I definitely recommend walking up there. From the castle you get some great views over Alanya. The castle itself looks a bit more exciting when you're looking at it from the beach below though. In any case it's worth the trip.
  • Fantastic view. A nice comfortable walk around the grounds of the actual castle, I'd recommend taxi or bus up and walking down for all the shops.
  • perfect place to see and take marvelous photos...
