Bodrum castle 05

view map

From my travel guide I get the information that this castle was founded by the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, who were based on Rhodos but liked the opportunity of having a stronghold in Bodrum when that was captured in 1402. Itís called the Castle of St. Peter and houses the excellent (thatís me writing) Museum of Underwater Archeology.

This is a view from one wall, some harbour in the background.
