PEDASA is probably not a stop on the itinerary of tourists to Bodrum but it should be. About 4kms from Bodrum and a 500 metre walk from the end of the road to the ruins. Roadworks are being undertaken at present to widen and surface this road. As for many of the lesser known archaeological sites in Turkey there are rarely any tourists and we found ourselves alone for the 3 hours plus we spent there. This is always the joy no crowds, no noise only the birds, no rush just take it all in at your own pace. PEDASA enjoyed its heyday between the 11-16th centuries B.C. and there are ruins of a castle and royal tombs, an Acropolis, buildings, and Temple to Athena. Work began in 2005 towards excavating the site but there is still a long way to go! Lots of rocks to scramble over, imagination to be used but all in all a wonderful place to take In history, take in the amazing views from the top of the hill with the fortress ruins, just spectacular.
