Located in the village of Uchisar, Uchisar Castle is located between Nevsehir and Goreme, 5 kms from Goreme.
It takes approximately 120 steps to climb to the top of Uchisar Castle, do not expect to find a real castle, this is a rock castle that was used for protection in ancient times.
There is a secret tunnel bue very narrow, a large joint room and a guard room.
Unfortunately it is not possible to reach all the rooms, there are heavy circle doors, like those in the underground cities.
Many shops around with local crafts where you will be able to get some souveniers.
The main attraction here is to reach the top of the castle where you will have a stunning 360 degree view of Cappadocia including Mount Erciyes in the distance.
Around the castle you can find several local craft shops.
In the 1950s, the authorities moved residents out of the castle to modern houses.
It belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage since 1985.
