Incredible Mountaintop Attractions
No vacation is really complete without a true "OMG!" moment and if these mountaintop attractions don't do that for you, nothing will. We strongly recommend you not look down while checking out these super-steep and downright terrifying attractions.
There are a lot of legends surrounding this little chapel, although the prevailing one seems to be that it was started by a man seeking retribution for throwing his brother over a cliff. Some people just can't let go of a grudge!
It seems virtually impossible that this fairy tale-beautiful town went through a period of time in which it was all but abandoned. Today, it's a vibrant, communal city with no end of markets, cultural events, and museums, among them, one that explores the world of bees!
If you’ve ever wanted to spend the night in a cave but hate the idea of roughing it, this hotel is your chance. While we’re pretty sure the Hittites never had mini-bars, you’ll still feel the weight of the area’s ancient history.
Having become a symbol of sorts for the entire country, the Rock Palace, or Dar al-Hajar, was built in the 1930s as a summer home for the then Islamic spiritual leader of the country. No longer in use as a private home, the palace can now be visited by tourists.
It won't surprise anyone to learn that this chapel, which dates back to at least 1409, figures into more of its fair share of myths and legends. The most famous of these is probably the story of Tristan and Isolde in which it provides the doomed lovers shelter.

They hold weddings here and you can bet there are probably some very nervous guests. While there have been some changes over the years, it's said that the castle has been in existence since the 13th century.
The original Cliff House was built in 1863 only to burn to the ground after surviving the earthquake of 1906. A modern day restoration uncovered a marble staircase as well as part of a carriage road from 1914.
Some people are just way ahead of their time; like Thomas and Gladys Johnston who founded this eco-friendly retreat in the 1960s. Made from materials found naturally in the area (like discarded whale bones), this house runs on solar energy and collects rainwater for bathing.
Featured in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," this structure, known as "The Treasury," has become the unofficial symbol of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amazingly, this and the other buildings in the area date back to the 1st century.
