  • Very difficult to climb and dangerous for children under 12. Castle ladders needs to be renovated and make it easier and safer to climb  more »
  • The Uchisar Castle rises up over the Cappadocia plain and is visible for miles in any direction. Fabulous concentration of buildings and houses built around the soaring castle hill. Great for morning....  more »

  • Slap in the middle of Ortahisar's town centre, this 18m-high rock outcrop was used as a fortress in Byzantine times. It was reopened after a restoration project stabilised the crumbling edifice, and you can now climb the precarious metal ladders and stairways to the viewing terrace halfway up and admire the glorious view. Head up in late afternoon for the best photography light. 4TL/person. If you park in front of the castle, pay 4TL and get one free entrance ticket.
  • Nice view from above. Very steep stairs to the viewing deck. Old people and those with height phobia might think twice before climbing up
  • Stunning view...especially from the open roof top restaurant diagonally across from the mosque at the foot of the Castle. Love the sight of children playing in the street below the Castle
  • Quiet village to stay one night with clearly twilight stars.
  • A rewarding climb in a lovely tuff castle.
