Çeşme Fortress

Çeşme / İzmir

Çeşme Fortress

The castle, built in a rectangular shape by Beyazıt II in 1508, creates a magnificent view with its 6 towers and three sides of it. The castle, which was built on the seafront when it was first built, remained more inland as the sea filled in time. The International Çeşme Music Competition, which is celebrated every year in the historical castle, and the Çeşme Festival between 2-7 July are held. When you visit the castle, you can see the statue of Great Turkish Commander Algerian Chief Admiral Hasan Pasha with his lion in front of the castle.
