In case you want to walk there in the burning heat... Not worth it. Have look from the bridge nearby instead. In case you are just at the spot, maybe you might enjoy the view at what is left of the old town.

Nice as a castle but nothing to see from it since it is not allowed to go up to the top.It is necessary to take care of it & make renovation for it to allow tourists to go up & see a panoramic view of Trabzon

A nice walk of an hour ,in the upper castle of the medieval city to admire the ruins of the ex Imperial Byzantine Palace,hidden besides ordinary local houses,and the nice panorama,is a must to complete a tour .
