Noste Castle

Noste Castle lies in the foothills south of the village of the same name, in the Kaspi municipality in the Shida Kartli region in Georgia.

Noste Castle dates back to the 15th century when it was probably built by Duke Ivane Saakadze. In 1603, Prince Giorgi Saakadze, the famous Georgian politician and military commander, took up residence in the castle. I don't have any other historical info about the castle. If you know more; please mail me.

The present remains are a slender tower, which served as a keep and dates back to the 17th century, and foundations of a former 2-storey palace and stables, which are said to date back to the 18th century. The foundations of a bath house were excavated east of the castle walls.

During the Soviet era, Giorgi Saakadze was a popular character and thus the castle ruins were consolidated and made accessbile.

Noste Castle is freely accessible. A simple castle ruin with a nice tower.
