Create an itinerary including Uchisar Castle
The natural rock citadel of Uchisar Castle offers a panoramic view over the surrounding landscape of valleys, mountains, and towns. The tallest fairy chimney in Cappadocia is carved with numerous rooms, tunnels, stairs, rock tombs, and a large water cistern. Notice the millstone doors at the entrances of the rooms, which used to control access to the castle. Today most of the rooms on the north side serve as pigeon houses. Note the simple Byzantine graves on top of the castle, which have been weathered and ransacked. Local women selling traditional souvenirs typically line the road that leads to the castle.

  • Be careful when you climb up the castle of Uçhisar, because there are poor protetion measures, and it can be dangerous. No need to go if the weather is not good, you will not see anything.

  • Don't miss the town or the castle - didn't go up the castle but loved the walking area at the bottom - stunning, like something from a star wars movie and by far the prettiest village of the area...

  • It was way better than I expected. If you're somewhere near this area it's a must visit place for you. The city was very hot that it felt like heaven inside the castle. That ambiance was 10/10 you're able to see many volcano shaped places. That castle has a couple of carved rooms that you can have amazing pictures in. There are protection barriers along the way to the top, so it feels safe to go there.
  • Magnificent place with amazing views. Well worth the 50 lira entrance fee. I went in the afternoon and it was quite busy. It opens at 5am and that would give a spectacular view.
