A 2 kilometre walk up hill from where the dolmus drops you off (there is a sign pointing the way). The site is quite large and walking up and down steps. The watch tower is precarious as you are climbing over fallen stones. There is not much left of the city, but worth a look, there are displays of what... More

For thousands of years people have fortified and lived in cities on this spot. The famous city Pedasa can still be imagined and examined with a few short but scenic walks. A real find if you love history!

We started to walk there, but soon found it would be tough to find. We found a taxi stand, got in and proceeded up a long, fairly steep road. We could have walked it with directions, but it was a bit of a surprise how far up the road it was. It's a beautiful setting high above Bodrum and into... More

The site is a little way out of Bodrum and best accessed by taxi as it is up hill and off the beaten track. Some substantial building and wall remains have been unearthed since 2007, in particular the citadel, which commands some excellent views over the peninsula, but be warned, the site is completely uncommercialised, so there are no facilities...

If you want to get away from the crowds you have to visit these ruins truly peaceful we were the only people there, other than a shepherd and some goats great scenery and lots of ruins, we drove right up to the site and will probably return for a pick nick

The ruins aren't really well preserved but, it is quite rustic and it was nice to avoid the crowds. If you're looking for off the beaten path ruins, this is the place to go. There are sheep running around and not much else. I took the bus to the bottom of the hill and walked up. Was a great hike.

An old ancient city with Athena temple ruins and more. A must visit for history lovers.No entry fee but the road may be a little rough.

Very extensive but only partly excavated site. It is an enormous site and a car helps get around the site ....and to get there in the first place. It is not well signed, though friendly locals helped us get there by consecutive directions. It is a very good and uphill walk to even the start of the site from its... More

This is a relatively unknown attraction and our taxi driver had to ask around to know where to take us! The upside was a taxi was only 30TL from Gumbet. You need to sure footed and capable of climbing steep steps and rough ground but it is worth it. The ruins were superb, set quite high in the mountains (relatively... More

An initial warning: unless you have your own car, be prepared for an uphill walk! We stayed in Gumbet and decided to walk to Pedasa which took a fair bit of time up all of the hills! However we were rewarded with a relatively unspoilt and quiet archaeological site which seemed to be very much a work in progress. The... More
