Myndos Gate is one of the two entrances of Halicarnassus. It is the only gate preserved. There is not much left of the gate or the walls, but it definitely worth to visit. You don't spend much time here, but if you walk little nearby, you could find more tombs than the one which in just next to the gate.

It seems they have they spent a lot of time restoring it and then left it to be ruined again. It took us literally 5 mins to explore, I would give it a miss.

It a must see in Bodrum for its age and cultural importance. There is no one there, the place is full of rubbish and very unloved, but it is a tranquil place steeped in history so well worth hunting out.

We were "shipped here" on a bus full of people who thought this was nothing to see. We got fifteen minutes to see, reflect and photograph. Not nearly enough. This is such an important historic place and you need to know about it before arriving, because there is not much information at the site. (Unless you happen to have a... More

I've rated this as very good because of its historical importance. There's not much of the site to actually see but that's irrelevant to me as a history lover. It's so easy to find on the outskirts of Gumbet town and makes for an obvious visit before heading alittle further down the road towards Bodrum where your next stop can... More

The remainder of the old city walls of Halicarnas is a huge portal tha was the Eastern entrance gate to the old city. The gate is far larger than I expected and is a place where the youngsters celebrate during the nights ( a lot of empty cans in the upper part of the portals). It is also a small... More

I would not go out the way to see this but our aparhotel was just down the road. It's free to enter and you can walk around tho there are empty beer bottles lying around and some down and outs have set up camp here, there are a few bits of signage about the place to explain the site.

Full of history and worth looking around. It is important to have a local guide to explain the history.
