Great visit but very hot. Nice little cafe to have a drink after your visit. Great views of the harbour and plenty to see.

If you travel in Summer (July, August) go there very early because it will be very hot. Don't miss any chamber there. The ship museum is inside of it, and the entrance to the castle is 12 TL

This overlooks the harbour. Well preserved and interesting. The shipwreck museum is in the castle and is a must-see feature.

Have visited the castle a couple of times and have seen lots of improvements with the displays since the last visit in 2011. Only 12TL to get in and worth it just for the views, but for those who like history it’s interesting to learn...More
