The Velvet Castle


Kadifekale means 'the velvet castle', and is the name of both the fortress and the hill on which it stands. Built in the fourth century BC, the walls are well preserved, with examples of Ottoman, Byzantine and Roman art on view. The vista from the ancient fortress across the hills and the Gulf of Izmir is spectacular.
