The Byzantine castle in Kusadasi is a landmark of this beautiful city. There is a small Museum inside the castle. The view from the castle to the azure coast of the Aegean sea is impressive.

Nice place to walk to if you ate too much. Not much to see inside but it's free. Sidewalk to get there is pretty narrow though

The Kusadasi castle is a symbol of this Aegean Turkish resort town. It's set on Pigeon island (which is btw not an island anymore, as it was connected to the mainland some 40y ago), and is visible from all over the area. The inner castle (the middle square cube) was built in 16c, while the surrounding fortifications were added later. Today they look very new and well preserved but that's due to renovation works. The castle is free to enter and its only, yet striking attraction is a whale skeleton displayed on ground floor, which was found stranded at Kusadasi shores. I remember my previous visit 8 y ago, we were able to climb the upper floor where's a small museum. However, this time it was closed, probably due to Covid. Nevertheless, the castle offers magnificent views on the whole town. Bonus TIPS: there are two nice beaches around the castle. One is right beneath it, to the right from the entrance offering swimming with great city views, the other's at the beginning of the causeway offering swimming with castle views.

I always get mixed up with The Castle and Pigeon Island..... Still not sure, as there's a castle about a 10/15 minute walk-on the way from the Centre-away from what I think is Pigeon Island, which has a castle there..... Maybe someone could enlighten me. Anyway, I had a walk up to this area after I had finished a bit of shopping, and was glad I did. It was really lovely walking up to it, with the old FisherMen, Boats and a few cats. You can really get a better prospective of Kusadasi from here. The Castle itself was really nice and there seems to be a nice-though probably over priced-eatery to the right as you enter the area, after the boats. The walk round can be done in a quick 10 minutes, 20 minutes with taking photos or maybe a leisurely 30 minutes. Overall, I'm glad I went out of my way to have a look at this place, as it was a pleasant hour spent of my time.
