Bodrum Castle

Bodrum’s castle is the city’s most important landmark and towers over the urban landscape and sea in all its medieval splendor. The castle, built in the 1400s, served the medieval Catholic military order of the Knights of St. John and was known as the Castle of St. Peter. Nowadays, it is a museum that houses an impressive collection of ancient shipwrecks discovered in the Aegean.
