15th century castle ruins overlooking Fethiye.

Annotated map of Castle Ruins in Fethiye


Overlooking Fethiye and visible from just about everywhere in the city, the ruins of Fethiye Castle provide a fantastic vantage point for views of the city and the harbor. Built in the 15th century by the Knights of St. John, the walls and some towers are still intact, as well as the citadel.


Note that there are no security rails or other safety precautions at the site – care should be taken, especially around the cliff-side perimeter.


There is no admission charge (indeed, there are no ‘staff’ there at all).


It’s a popular spot with local Turkish couples – don’t be surprised if you stumble across some of them looking for a discrete place to discuss current affairs and other mundane stuff…


Note: the site is apparently undergoing major restoration work and we’re told it is currently closed to the public.

How You Can Help

Trail research is never actually done. Here’s some of what we’re looking for:
✅   More photos! Ideally with geo-location information in the metadata. In addition to using some photos on Trekopedia, we add them to our internal reference database which significantly helps us with trail research. The more photos, the better! If you are willing to share your collection with us, we’d be incredibly grateful. Let us know and we’ll arrange a transfer.

✅   Points of interest. Help us identify (and geo-locate) accommodations, attractions, restaurants, markets, trail waypoints, confusing or problematic junctions, difficult or hazardous places, water sources, and so on. 

✅   Tips & recommendations. Share your thoughts with other hikers.
In addition to the above, please see this article for information on more general ways you can help. Thanks!
