Cave Castle Must See
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.

  • Beautiful building with amazing views and endless stairs. I would advise you to go and see that the pigeon is very close to the hill. Excellent visual show. The old stairs can not come out

  • Great place for see the landscape from the highest point. Not to bad of a walk up. Nominal entrance fee. Recommend.
  • Must visit, recommended starting point prior to exploring Capadokia, because: it's a highest point; impressive structure itself; wonderful commanding views 360 around. Enjoy
