It’s a very long and steep climb if you choose to walk: but the views over the coastline below are worth the effort. You can of course drive, take a bus or a taxi. Walkers do not have to follow the road all of the way: there are shortcuts. Little remains of the castle than the outer defensive walls (of... More

Must be if in Alanya. Mostly for people who like walking. Lots of shops up there. Lots of ways to go down make you lost easily but for me this is huge plus cause could see more.

I first visit the Castle in 2001. The view is stoning and the history about it is worth a visit. As a traveler in Alanya every year, I always visit this place and take beautiful pictures.

Absolute must if visiting Alanya. Has some fantastic views from the castle. It cost us 15lira each to go in. We caught the local bus up to the castle cost 2.5lira each and walked back down stopping off for refreshments in the bar/restaurants who also have fantastic views over Alanya.

We caught a taxi from the harbour to the Castle which was well worth it as our driver also acted as a guide. The history and location of the castle, the mosque and red fort, the views from the top were something not to be missed.

Thank AJE60
