What people are saying:

This is a seaside castle with a very long history. It is located on a peninsula. It has a history of more than 600 years. Ascending to the castle, you can overlook the entire strait. The scenery is very beautiful. There are iron cannons left over from ancient times on the castle. It seems that this place is very majestic and is definitely a strong fortress.

    Currently closed - as at June 2019

    As above, I visited Urfa in June 2019 and the castle was closed. However, the views from the site are worth the climb - my recommendation would be to do it early morning.

    Currently closed for restoration

    Tried to get in here but was told it was closed for restoration. I had a quick look from the starting point. Its range of dates from 300 AD approximately and not a lot left to see except two towers.
