Dermetinan Fortress

The fortress was built to protect the Karacadağ road between Mardin and Diyarbakır. Perched on a 150-meter high peak, the fortress appears to be Byzantine, although the precise date of construction is not known. The single gate faces north, and there are eight towers plus a watchtower. The fortress is ornamented with beautiful reliefs.
