“Best view in Alanya” A must see when visiting Alanya. This is a beautiful old ruin with much history.This place is recommended to all people who like to do climbing. The route on foot can be done quite well.

A must see when visiting Alanya. This is a beautiful old ruin with much history, and if that doesn't appeal to you, the view definitely does. Very spectacular and beautiful place. A must see when you go to Alanya.

This place is recommended to all people who like to do climbing. The route on foot can be done quite well. The route up and down are quite steep however and not well suited for the untrained person. An good alternative is to go up by car and and stop at the various places to enjoy the view. For those... More

Good place for sunset. Perfect panoramic view. A good, but difficult way for walking. A little town in the castle.

I like the history in this area and from this place you can see well over the Alanya. Good place if you want to enjoy from sunset or even do some sport (jogging, walking).
