  • It is better to take a transfer from The Airport and to the airport. The Open Air Museum is walking a kilometer 1.5-2 . There is a stop towards Gerem but we did not wait for public transport and went on foot. On the way good people offered to let you down. The road is not difficult, as it goes downhill, but it is better to get back by transport. The village of Ortahisar is not usually a wrinkle. New buildings are adjacent to quaint mountains. In Ortahisar, the 13th century church of Jambazla and the fortress rock are restored to the rock: From the fortress cliffs, very beautiful views of the surroundings. You can walk for hours in the old city. Come and see for yourself.

  • A symbolic fortress in the middle of the wait of Hortahisal. You can climb up for a fee. It's very inconvenient if you don't rent a car or bike.

  • Large tower. Found some free street parking. Lots of interesting facts available, they want your watches and so enough for others To take over  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.
