The castle is a historic must-see location in Bodrum. It does require a bit of effort to explore but the view from above is worthwhile.

Half of the doorways in the castle have the classic Roman Arch which have weathered perfectly over the centuries. The other doorways are cover by large stone stabs. In each and every case the slabs above the doorways have fractured because of the massive weight. Don't pay to use the grotty little bathrooms outside the castle gate. The washrooms inside... More

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...
