  • Amasra Castle: By far the most iconic symbol of the city, Amasra Castle was included in UNESCO’s tentative list of World Heritage in 2013. The castle was used actively during different periods including the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman eras. Amasra Castle, which is made up of two castles, perfectly complements the shore. The Sormagir Castle and the Zindan Castle are two of the castle's linking sections, both of which were renovated during the Genoese period in the 14th and 15th centuries. Through the medium of a bridge known as Kemere, they are linked to one another. The castle's 65-meter-long east side walls are made of stone. Not to mention, the boutique hotels in Amasra near the castle are highly recommended due to their perfect locations!
  • Weeping Tree: This locally renowned tree retains the liquid it absorbs from the sea and the air, returning it as drops in the spring and fall. Hence it appears to be crying. That’s why it is called the “weeping tree”. Quite popular among tourists and locals, the weeping tree is among top tourist attractions in Amasra.
  • Galla Bazaar:Galla Bazaar is located in the center of Bartın and here you can find many organic products such as tomatoes, strawberries, cucumbers, yogurt, milk, all produced by the women of the region.

  • Kemere Bridge:Connecting two prominent neighborhoods to each other, Kemere Bridge is one of the key symbols of Amasra. It was built during the Roman period and it still stands tall. Also, it is on the route to the “weeping tree”.
