Uçhisar Castle

Uçhisar is a town in Cappadocia.

Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]


From the heights of the Uçhisar citadel, you have a magnificent and unrivaled view of the whole region.

  • Uçhisar Castle / Landlord's Castle (Uçhisar Kalesi) (The big rock on top of the hill in Uçhisar). The view from the top of this massive rock with a number of rooms carved into it is well worth the price of admission. The path to the top is strenuous but short, mostly stairs and relatively safe. 6 TL.
  • There are also many similar hand carved rooms and tunnels you can explore in the nearby Pigeon valley. Fewer stairs, perhaps less safe.
