The castle is much larger than one imagines from the outside and to do it justice you really need a good few hours to look around. From the ancient carvings from the early Knights Templar to the display of early amphorae and various other displays inside the castle it is really a worthwhile attraction to visit.

Title says it all but I wanted to clarify a few things. Not sure why there are 3 different "attractions" on TA for the same place. The museum and archeology exhibit are all within the castle/fort. Another thing is that people mention the climbing. The climbing isn't that bad at all (compared to other sites in Turkey i.e. Ephesus, Priene,... More

It's a piece of history worth a visit,about 20TL entrance and like most castles there's lots to see if you go and find it,don't expect it to come to you, look round and you may be very surprised at what you see. There's plenty of good views of the harbour,of Gumbet ,the windmills and plenty more besides.

A museum in an old castle on the waterfront. Nice view of the bay. A few exhibits, but worth the price of admission.
