Tek Kale Castle

Tek Kale Castle, locally known as Tek Kale Kalesi, sometimes also known as Tekkale Kalesi or Dört Kilise Kalesi, lies on a rock in the village of Tekkale, in the province of Artvin in Turkey.

When Tek Kale Castle was built is unknown. Because its walls are built out of rubble masonry, which is comparable to other medieval castles in this region, it is thought to have been built in the Middle Ages.

This is all the information I was able to find about Tek Kale Castle. So, if you know more, please mail me.

Tek Kale Castle is situated on a large and steep rock in the middle of the Çoruh valley protecting the northern approach to Tekkale village. A couple of towers and some walls remain on the western and southern part of the rock top. On the northern part these have disappeared, with the exception of a small chapel. The original entrance would probably have been at the western side of the rock, but this has disappeared.

Tek Kale Castle is inaccessible. Too bad, it looks great.
