The natural rock citadel of Uchisar Castle offers a panoramic view over the surrounding landscape of valleys, mountains, and towns. The tallest fairy chimney in Cappadocia is carved with numerous rooms, tunnels, stairs, rock tombs, and a large water cistern. Notice the millstone doors at the entrances of the rooms, which used to control access to the castle. Today most of the rooms on the north side serve as pigeon houses. Note the simple Byzantine graves on top of the castle, which have been weathered and ransacked. Local women selling traditional souvenirs typically line the road that leads to the castle.

  • Nice but the Museum card is not valid for your information gives you a ticket booth attendant, but when you want to plug the plug is not naturalness is broken down

  • Along the way you can stop on the way to visit may not see from Nevsehir, gift places but instead of going to the castle its located under the landscape around a large area so you can get nice green blue colors very vibrant is recommended

  • It provides a great view of the sunset and the landscape . Many people visit that place for that reason. Also I think it's worth taking a look in the musem on your way to the top ( even though I didn't... :) Because of lack of time ) . There is a ticket that you have to pay but I don't remember how much it was.
  • Natural and weirdly homely feeling comes in this place. This place was home to many in the past. At top of mountain, you can see kilometres of Civilization and blending of nature. Somewhere deep, it feels aloof yet in sync with nature.
  • 8 TL entrance fees. Takes few minutes to climb the top. Best seen in sunset
  • Only name as castle. Basically you can climb up the mountain for a good view. Entry ticket costly for such a view.
  • 60 million years old historical place. The view from the top of this massive rock with a number of rooms carved into it is well worth the price of admission. The path to the top is strenuous but short, mostly stairs and relatively safe. 60 Milyon yıllık tarihi bölge. betondan sıkıldıysanız farklı şeyler yaşamak istiyorsanız mutlaka görün.
