“Free and with great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

This “Castle” is literally just a few walls and battlements. It’s free to get into, and the views from the top are stunning. Don’t come for the history, come for the view.

“A must see in ankara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

Nice view if the city. I recommend to visit during day. You can see some volunteered children as tourist guides. They never leave you until they get tip. A must see in ankara. Do not forget to take your camera with you

“A little strange for a castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Hard to review this. The castle ruins are OK with respectable views from the castle walls what is really worth a visit is the small town within the walls. Like a medieval village inter spaced with new modern rich looking 'mansions ' between dilapidated 16th century looking houses. The general area is run down but with a great atmosphere and fantastic valued shops.
