  • If you are interested in the history of the area this is for you, the surrounding area is the "old" town and well worth a visitas well  more »
  • The most interesting thing is to find the entrance to the castle, winding on narrow crooked streets. This is really a story. And the castle was not impressed. The best inside is the view from the wall to the harbor. The museums inside are two small semi-dark rooms with dozens of artifacts, the entrance of 12 lire from the face.

  • A small castle, but with an interesting handle. The museum is more of an observation deck, otherwise attractive

  • Very aesthetic and great for taking pictures, you can see the sea from the top. There is also a very nice lady who sells some souvenirs on the way up. The museum inside is very small and they don't like people taking pictures of the artifacts. However, feel free to take pictures at the top of the castle. It cost about 12 lira each. They are also abit strict on what you can take in and there is no smoking in the castle.
  • A very beautiful castle with a Mediterranean breeze that softly touches your chicks. The museum inside the castle also hosts very beautiful collections dating back to 3000 BC. If you ever wonder how old the Anatolian civilization is, best thing to do is to visit some museums such as this one.
  • Family holiday with the kids. Absolutely loved it and would highly recommend. Try to book room in main building and avoid the bungalows unless going in the high season.
  • Lovely castle to visit. Not really that much to explore though. You have the courtyard, about 4 rooms I think and the battlements. It is very nice though,a lot of history. 12 Turkish Liras was the ticket price when I went there.
  • It's was ok. Nothing g too special they don't even sell drinks in it or anywhere near it on a hot summer day. But the views in u up there are really nice
