“Castle”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I love how historical is this castle, only too bad was not able to see the whole thing what's inside. Outside view is already interesting. Got some shots somehow.

“Great View at the Top”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

It costs around 6 or 7 TL to get in and is worth spending an hour or so of your time there. The museum has some mildly interesting artifacts. Inside the castle is a little garden space that had tortoises walking around. The best part is the view at the top. You have an awesome view of all of Cesme and the water! It was breathtaking.

“Historic castle, nice view”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I was surprised what I've found in Cesme. You don't expect much from outside but it is a well preserved and nicely reconstructed castle. You get to see a nice marina view from the top. There are several interesting objects inside the castle museum. And the two security - ladies inside the museum area are extremely kind. Serpil and Dilek (we had a small chat) were eager to tell us about the history of the castle and the pieces in the museum. So we enjoyed the view of the marina, played a small piece of LARP (live action role playing game) and also get to learn about history for free :)
Lovely place, lovely people...

“Impressive focus”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Truly an impressive location - it looks daunting to climb around from the outside, but its worth the effort for the spectacular views over the harbour.
