To think of all the great people that have been here and to be able to follow in their footsteps, a truly honored experience. I am sure they are busy with keeping up this place, and to preserve it for thousands of years to come....More

It's large and impressive but it's both ancient and modern. Originally from the 4th century BC but so much has been added in recent years. However it does play a large part in the history of Bodrum, or Halikarnassos, as it was back then. And...More

Located roughly 15 minute walk out of the centre . The site is free and also had excavated tombs as well as the imposing Gates . It has obviously been well restored but has since been neglected which is a great pity .

Of archaeological importance and easy enough to get to, it has been restored but now is falling back into dilapidation despite the presence of the new adjacent visitor centre which again is almost empty.
