accessible by car; free to access; looks really ancient, you get majestic feeling when you see it and walk in between the gates; the gates are quite ruined, there are some graves, interesting to read on them. there is strange large old tree growing not far, some traditional syrup is made from its fruits;

The gate is set back behind a new shopping development. It's completely open, with sign posts around the site explaining what you are seeing. As people with an interest in history but no deep knowledge we felt it was worth going to find.

Not easy to find, but worth the walk on a fine, out of season day. When we visited the site was almost deserted and the remains are impressive.

I guess it's worth the visit if for no other reason than historical value. Easily accessible on a good walk.

You never visit Bodrum without visiting Myndos Gate! We always enjoy sitting in the beautiful yard and having a cold drink

We stayed at the myndos resort, so had this as a backdrop to the pool area. A pity more is not made of this historic site. Broken signage and really not loved enough, needs more attention.

Really interesting! Stopped here during a tour and was told all the history. Was really nice to stop and have a walk around. Admittedly not a lot to see so only took us 20 minutes but interesting to see some local history

There is not a lot of to see, but for sure it si a part of history which stays in backround. There are a couple of info tables, so you can visit withoud any guides to keep informed what you see there.

The only remaining standing gate, not a lot to see here but the history behind it makes up for it, can get some nice views from the top of it.

Myndos Gate is part of the old city wall of Halikarnassos. The site has been extensively excavated and has a significant role in the defensive make up of ancient Bodrum. There is not a lot left to see so some imagination is required to fully contemplate the site as it would have looked. Not particularly well looked after despite investment... More
