Bodrum Castle... an unforgettable journey to Mediaval times

Visiting Bodrum Castle might just be one of the highlights of your holiday. St. Peter's Castle was built by the Knights of St. John of Rhodes in early 15 th C. as a military stronghold. It is a very good example of medieval arhitecture. It has massive walls, five towers and seven gates. A number of incriptions and coats of arms can be seen at various places of the castle.

Since 1961, Bodrum Castle has served as a museum, specializing in Underwater Archaeology. It also has very interesting exhibitions of other antiquities.


The main exhibititions of the museum are Uluburun and other Shipwrecks, Carian Princess Hall, Amphora Exhibition, English Tower, German Tower, Glasswreck Hall, Coins and Jewellery Hall, Turkish Bath Exhibition and so on.

As you walk around the castle, there are wonderful opportunities to take pictures of Bodrum and the marina. The castle has a beautiful garden and a collection of various flowers grown in the Bodrum region.

There is also a nice cafe where you can enjoy a tea or coffee at the end of your visit.
