Kadifekale, located on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Izmir, was built by Alexander the Great in the 3rd century BC.

Kadifekale has been repaired by different civilisations over time and has survived until today.

The walls bearing the signature of the Hellenistic and Roman periods stand out with all their nobility despite the modern urbanisation around it.

There are remains of a Byzantine cistern and a mosque inside the castle.

You can crown your visit to Kadifekale with a cup of tea you sip while watching the bay view in the cafe at the entrance.

You can reach Kadifekale, where entrances are free of charge, from districts such as Konak, Bornova, Gaziemir, Fahrettin Altay, with your rented car from Dailygo Rent a Car.
