The Castle has the added attraction of housing the Underwater Archeological Museum . The Castle grounds contain a dungeon , interesting statues , a great display of Amphora and mosaics . Fantastic views from the walls and towers and shady gardens to rest and enjoy . Be prepared to spend around 3 hours in order to take it all in

The castle was built by the knights of St. John. The third one if it's type after Jerusalem & Rhodes. So very interesting architecture & construction. It's located on a promontory & so has fabulous views overlooking Bodrum & it's pretty bay. Easy to walk to from a cruise ship too, through the very varied market! There is an audio... More

Been to many ancient historical sites to compare with including Ephesus in Kudasasi, Acropolis in Athens, Pompeii in Naples, and Pantheon/Vatican/St. Angelo's in Rome. This is a great historical monument. The castle is in great condition - allow 2 hours for a high level visit to cover all the grounds and various sections of this large structure. If you are...

Only 30TL each entrance which includes all the cool underwater archaeological exhibits as well as the whole castle. Beautiful glassware from BC, with plenty of information. The entrance is 50 m past where all the ferry boats drop off. Definitely worth a visit.

This trip has been all about the history. From the cruise ship, you can walk 35-40 minutes, along the coast and thru an active marketplace to get to the castle, (shop on the way back). Castle structure is very good, about 1400 AD. Plenty of places to shop or stop for coffee/drink on the way home. Even dip your feet... More
