İç Kale (Kars Castle)

İç Kale (Kars Castle) Review

The town's castle looms over the area from its high, rocky vantage point. Though it dates from the 10th century, in 1386 Tamerlane swept violently through the region and razed the original structure, and most surviving fortifications were commissioned by Lala Mustafa Paşa in 1579. The castle has gone through some restoration in recent years and the panoramic views of Kars merit the 10-minute walk uphill.
