Uchisar Rock Castle

Announcement Date: 13/09/2017

Uchisar is a local fortress from which probably the town took its name. “Uc” means tip, and “hisar” fortress, so Uchisar is the fortress at the tip (of the vicinity) in Turkish language. This 60 mt. high ( 200ft ) fortress was carved out of a natural hill dominating the area with a breathtaking view of all the surrounding Cappadocian formations.
