"visit the walls and walk round..." Diyarbakir Favorite Tip by maykal

Diyarbakir General: 17 reviews and 16 photos


Favorite thing: visit the walls and walk round the top of them. They are supposed to be the largest continuous walls after the Great Wall of China, but somehow I have my doubts. Anyway, they are impressive, and are nice to walk along, although parts of the walls are within a military area, so try not to accidentally wander in there! While walking round the top, we came across a fairground which had been set up to celebrate Eid al-Adha (sorry, I don't know the Turkish name, only the Arabic...please let me know!).
