“Good castle, lots of steps!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Certainly worth visiting, although a lot of walking up and down steps. Not great for those with young kids or the oldies I'd imagine!

“Nice but...”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

It just a late medieval castle with nice views from above. It doesn't worth 25 tl (same price with Pamukkale!)

“Fascinating”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Well worth a look for anyone interested medieval history. Fascinating, and with some great views of Bodrum from the battlements. Looks great at night also.

“Bodrum Castle”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

It's a wonderful location right by the water. I recommend going to the very top and looking into the distance to catch a quick glimpse of the Greek island of Kos. This is great for singles, couples or families. I do recommend wearing sneakers or very sturdy shoes because it is a castle and some of the surfaces can be uneven in places. One interesting fact that I learned about the castle is that it was built with bricks from the Mausoleum by the Knights that came during the Crusades. I don't know if this is true, but it is still an interesting tidbit.
