Gori Castle once served as a strategic fortification overlooking the eponymous city. Perched on a rocky hill, the fortress probably dates to the 13th century. The present-day structure was built between 1630 and 1774, featuring rounded bastions made of baked bricks and herringbone patterns in the stonework of the walls. Enjoy a view of the city through pointed stone arches, and see snowcapped Caucasus in the distance.

Gori Castle reviews
It is a nice place to stop by but I couldn’t hike cause of the tour timing so I just visited it quickly. more »
A nice view The fortress is a walking distance from the Stalin museum, but the hike up there is not an easy one, and the fortress is mostly in ruins, it offers a nice view of Gori from above though... more »
After Tbilisi this place doesn't look like something really special. But it's the only one place in Gori city where you can take a nice walk. The entrance is free, but place is under reconstruction, so maybe in future it will change. Anyways, visit this place if you still have some time after Stalin museum, before dinner in Sport Cafe.
Extensive walls and beautiful views. Nice to walk up around with the wild flowers in summer and for the sunset over the town. However, upon teaching the castle, we were disappointed to find no internal structures and no information or signage. The path up to the castle is unmarked. The 8 mutilated warriors say at the bottom of the castle are a very evocative memorial for the 2008 war.
