Izmir’s very own castle, founded under Alexander the Great's dominion and strategically located up Pagos Hill, affords great views over the city and the bay. At sunset, the call to prayer echoes throughout the city, reverberating in a show of Izmir's soul. Linked to the center by a bus line, it is also ideal for a suggestive hike.
