We visited several of the sights of Bodrum as part of a five hour walk about. This was a nice site as part of that but a visit by itself is not that exciting. It's pretty overgrown and motorcyclists use the area as a short cut so watch yourself on the pathways there. Not really well signed... Bit hidden... But... More

Just a pile of stones with not much to explain the significance. Could do with more explanations. Out of the way and quite difficult to access from the town.

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.
