by Pinat
 
 

The Castle of Amasra was built during the Roman time. Then, it was repaired by the Byzantines and the Genoese and the Ottomans. It consists of two smaller subcastles: "Zindan Kalesi" and "Sormagir". Sormagir Castle is in Boztepe Hill and is connected to Amasra via Kemere Bridge.

The ruins of the castle is in the middle of the town center today and the ruins are all surrounded by houses (Check the pic).
