    Very steep side streets.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Before going to Mardin it may be good to know it's not an easy town to explore. The Old Town sits below the high hill where the castle sits on top. As soon as you leave the main street it is very steep in all directions. There are looong stairs to climb.

    Favorite thing: The Castle, looming high above the town form the outcrop where it sits, is a military area and thus a no-go place.

    Favorite thing: The post office in Old Mardin sits along the thoroughfare Cumhuriyet Caddesi. It is known to be a very beautiful building, which can not tbe seen from the outside,alas. At the time of my visit there were roadworks going on in front of it so I didn't send my postcards from here. It was too difficult to manage the way up with a bad knee.

    How to find the objects.

    by Askla Written Jun 30, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.
