Pigeon Island (Guvercin ada)

Pigeon is a small island located in the city center became the symbol of kusadasi. A breakwater  connecting the pigeon island to the coast lets the tourists easily walk in to visit the island and castle inside.

A castle built over steeprocks during the Byzantium period and 2.5 mt height City walls  surrounding the island  was also used by ottomans in 19th century against rebels and pirates.  So the castle called  as castle of pirates by some locals.

Today a restaurant inside and one at the entrance of castle is available to spend time and drink something while watching a fascinating sunset.

castle was restored, decorated and illuminated by local government. When you are driving to kusadasi or in kusadasi this exquisite view of illumination of history will salute you.
