If you go to North Cyprus this is a must to visit, spectacular views over coast, Hard clime to top viewing areas, so not for the faint hearted.

With a lot of effort you can reach the peak of seven hundred and thirty two metered. You can either explore the castle and it's towers to the least detail or climb up to the peak.

The views here are just incredible, as is the sense of wonder that people could have built this castle so far up in the peaks of the mountains. How brutish and nasty was life that people had to protect themselves in this way....; how convenient...More

Old castle ruins, quite a lot of steps to climb if you want to get to the top but the whole family made it (12-54 years old) so it isn't too challenging. Not much info around about the history of the castle but it was...More
