  • Very helpful actually. No way was good. Also, you can get your car up to the door of the Castle. Just more than Kila. Studies on the way out to the Castle or something. I hope that in the future, a more social place.. I really like the Castle. We didn't know whether to see us go on Sunday, but we couldn't get into the Castle. I wonder if it is introduced? Has anyone seen the inside??

  • 60 km from Van to Van-Hakkari got put on top of the Hill on the road like an Eagle's nest. Way out of here completely under control. The Castle probably made this way in a timely manner to keep them under control. Like many historic places we visited in this castle closed due to restoration. So you're going to come all the way here from İstanbul properly without seeing anything. We went up to the door of the Castle. After taking a few pictures. The castle was done by the Seljuks, in mosques, a Hammam, the Castle Dungeon and wells bulundunu. I hope we can visit again at the ends of the restoration.
