Not just for the Historians, Myndos Gate was well worth going to visit.Was once the ancient city of Myndos and has the only remaining gate of a 7km wall of Halicarnassus. You can walk around this ancient site unperturbed and see spectacular views from the top of the larger gate. It is a trip back in time. Head out of... More

We enjoyed the historical aspects of Myndos gate but disappointed at the lack of cleanliness at such an ancient monument

We walked to this site from the port, which took about 1/2 hour. When you consider the history, it is an interesting site, although there isn't a lot to see. In fact, in the middle of the day, we were the only people there

This archaelogical site was part of the L'Ambiance Hotel complex which is a disaster for it, as it was strewn with rubbish etc. However it was very interesting and has links to King Mausilos and the Ancient Wonder of the Mauseleum at Halikarnassos - worth a look if you a history buff. The Mauseleum doesnt exist anymore, so this site... More

Not much to see here except the gate itself. Some work is still being done in the area and so it is not quite finished but it does look lovely and you can get some nice photos here.

completely renovated remains of something that once used to be a gate to the city. restauration process sometimes really takes its toll. unfortunately. but, have to admit, the view from the gate is nice and everything around it is very clean and well maintained.

The site is slightly out of town approximately 20 minutes from the Yacht Club. The area is interesting to see but sadly neglected, and covered in rubbish and it seems a shame that the area is not better maintained. I'm pretty certain that when Alexander the Great walked through the gate to the city, it was not strewn with glass,... More

Well worth a quick walk, took 20 minutes from Club Alka, so about the same from Gumbet strip, maybe less. What is there is still well worth the look, amazing,
