Not far from Kemer, approximately 10 kilometers to north of the city, in the mountains (650 m above sea level), in a small village is the ruins of the ancient Roman Kadrema (Gedelme) Castle.
Entrance to the Castle is closed due to its general condition. However, the Castle can still go on the path, which clearly could be seen among the bushes.
I would also like to note that Lycian Way passes through Gedelme and Gedelme has cave a depth of about 500 meters.
Comfortably get to the Gedelme is possible only by car – walk or bike to do it will be very difficult, as the road is quite steep and constantly goes uphill (but steep climb up the hill – about 5 km).
