  • Amazing view, and clear air the winds are very refreshing in the summer.. but the castle itself is neglected and dirty.. no cleaning or lighting or guiding signs nor even safety bench ..
  • Great scenic view, one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited in Istanbul. The view of the bridge and Bosporus is amazing, specially at sunset. Walking about the ruins of the castle is amazing too. Definitely recommend it for a place to explore for a few hours that’s unpopulated and beautiful at the same time!
  • The site could be better organized for parking cars
  • Very nice ..
  • It's a very scenic place to hang out with friends and family for a picnic or picture session plan. I definitely think that it's a good idea if you bring mangaal with you. As you get an opportunity to have an open area to use as you wish. You even get to see the 4th bosphorus bridge, boats and the scenery of the Rocky costal Beach. Although the place is gorgeous, the rubbish and litter around the place ruins it all. I enjoyed sitting on the gorge which is about 90m above sea level. It's worth a try to photographers and outdoor events
