It really wasn't worth much but they did have some fantastic cisterns. Spend more time at St. John's below it. Wonderful to see when you drive in at night, though.

Great location and easy to get to. The castle dominates the hilltop and is a logical place of defense, the fortress survives.

Occupying an impressive position on top of the Ayasoluk Hill, the Castle is something to take the attention; the height of the walls, size of the castle, etc. Inside it is unfortunately less interesting as it is almost a shell but it is still worth...More
