Hoşap Kale

Hoşap Kale is beside the town of Güzelsu, 50km from Van,


On a vertical rock that looks down on mud brick houses, Hoşap citadel was built for the Ottoman Kurdish governor Sarı Süleyman Bey in 1643 to resemble a Seljuk fortress. Approached from the village of Güzelsu over a 17th-century bridge, it has two towers and a keep, and the remains of a mosque and hamam. If it is locked, it is not always easy to find somebody with the keys, as photographer Brian McKee discovered (see Cornucopia 54)
