It's large and impressive but it's both ancient and modern. Originally from the 4th century BC but so much has been added in recent years. However it does play a large part in the history of Bodrum, or Halikarnassos, as it was back then. And...More

Located roughly 15 minute walk out of the centre . The site is free and also had excavated tombs as well as the imposing Gates . It has obviously been well restored but has since been neglected which is a great pity .

Slightly off the beaten track and shamefully full of rubbish and lads on scooters. But still a piece of history.

Worth a walk around to feel the history but not worth making an expedition to go and see it. It was right outside our hotel hence why we went. It's also free
