Uchisar Castle, Uchisar

(4.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The highest point of the Castle area and the largest peribacası. From the top is very comfortable and you can see Mount Erciyes and Hasan in a way. Going up to the top to see the beautiful view! Approx 180 meter height from the Castle you can photograph every place.
