Alanya Kalesi (Castle), Alanya

4.4
A medieval castle built high atop a hill, Alanya Kalesi (Castle) now serves as an open-air museum. The castle was constructed mostly in the 13th century on the remains of former fortifications from the Byzantine and Roman eras. Built on a rocky peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea, the castle stands 250 m (820 ft) high and offers an unmatched view of the bay and the surrounding area. Make the long trek up, or jump in a taxi to reach the ruins of the massive castle, whose protective wall extends 6.5 km (4 mi), and which includes 140 towers. The site itself lacks a lot of historical information, so hire a local guide if you wish to learn more. Discover how to plan a Alanya trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
