Zile from Kale

view map

The Kale is a fine one, though with views that are less spectacular than the Turhal one. On the other hand, here, once you arrived, sweating from the climb, there is more than a lone radio station and a dilapidated portrait of Atatürk in blown out light bulbs, as is the case in Turhal. Rather, a nice tea garden awaits you. And: this is really a fortress, with thick walls, towers here and there, its defensible space. The Turhal Kale would take some repair to get even vaguely like it.

The views are great. I imagined this was somewhat like the terrain where Caesar had his battle.
