Cave Castle Must See
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. Put Uchisar Castle and other Uchisar attractions into our Uchisar tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

    Uchisar Castle inside and a glorious structure from the outside in. 5-6 carved on the inside floor. It can be seen easily through Göreme. You can also enjoy visits to the inside during a visit. Fairy Chimneys Cappadocia Is the largest within the fairy chimney Uçhisar. Both in the castle itself, where the municipality in both 1-hour walk away. Cappadocia is also one of the places must be visited. Good stuff can be removed for photo enthusiasts.

    Being in the Cappadocia region and where we buy pleasure certainly Uchisar; Fairy Chimney formations of the heybetlisi de Uchisar Is. Castle and sunset and Sunrise must be where I need to be preferred to watch. Near the Castle where the sheer number of souvenir sales provide a competitive environment without taking it all around price shopping, come on. Dried fruits, especially in front of the entrance of the Castle, selling stands do not go without.

    Even though we don't get to the closing time of the castle the landscape outside. Closing time came to coincide with a quiet prayer for that. The castle's down side sunset so beautiful photos can be thought.

    The castle stands on the highest point in the region. I could admire the magnificent panorama around for hours. Most holes are in use as pigeons houses. Visit some cave rooms, tunnels or climb up to the top and feel the life of people who once lived here! In Uchisar you can find many fine hand made local products as carpets, textiles, ceramics.

Where to stay in Uchisar

If you're looking for an authentic Cappadocian stay near the famed rock formations, consider Üçhisar. The town evokes a quieter feel than neighboring villages, providing a compromise between the bustle and posh alternatives. Adventurous travelers may choose to stay in one of the many cave hotels, which are diverse in their levels of luxury. Surrounding the town's innermost fairy chimney area sits a collection of moderate- to high-priced hotels, guesthouses, and family-run bed and breakfasts. Staying in Üçhisar also puts you close to the tourist attraction of Pigeon Valley.
