Immerse yourself in the history of the Castle of St. Peter
History buffs will enjoy this relaxing day visiting one of Turkey’s most famous landmarks, located on the Bodrum coast. The huge 15th century castle overlooks the glistening water in the harbour, making the views stunning both day and night. It’s called The Castle of St. Peter and was constructed during the crusades of the middle ages. A long stretch of stone walls contain nearly 250 coats of arms and connect five towers known commonly as the English, Italian, German, French and the Snake towers.
The castle itself is magnificent and was intricately built in a way to defend itself and the grounds are open for the public to explore. Visit the museum for a fascinating look at life exhibits of a world of ancient mariners, including the Knights of St. John and the oldest ever excavated shipwreck.
