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.

Uchisar Castle reviews
This mountain is ok but you can see so many places like this in Cappadocia for free. Just go on a hike, walk around and you will find many places like this. more »
Amazing view from top!!! You can go all the way of this castle by going up staircase along the outside wall. It is quite far up, but once you reach top of castle, you will be rewarded by the amazing..... more »
You can photograph it for free from one of the many terraces along the road. Going up is 15 TL per person. It's not a hard climb but the view honestly isn't as good as just sipping on some tea and... more »
Steeps are little hard to climb but this formation is amazing. It was fun up there but the view was okay. Still a nice experience with friends. If you are with kids, i wouldnt recommend it
Impressive cave castle though it seems more like stacked layers of residential dwellings... Great panoramic views on top! With the token admission fee and the start of your Pigeon valley hike back to Göreme, this sight fits into the itinerary perfectly!
A unique looking castle made out of one big stone. There is a hiking path to the top which serves as a great panoramic view over some of Cappadocia's valleys. A good place to watch the sunset.
The view from the top of the castle is great. Unfortunately there is not much left from the castle to visit for tourists. But still worth going since you have a good 360 view.
This is a nice place to visit. You can go to the top of the castle but can not visit the castle from the inside which I expected. If you are on top of the castle you have a nice view. You also have to pay for admission, it's not much, but is it worth it? Im not sure yet.
