Visit the Castle of St. Peter
The magnificent Castle of St. Peter, also known as Bodrum Castle, sits proudly along the beautiful coastline protecting the harbour. Favourable among history buffs and those after a break from the energetic city, the castle grounds are open for the public to explore. The huge castle was built in the 15th century during the crusades of the middle ages by the Knights of Rhodes. The maze like walls were interestingly built in a way that it could defend itself from attack. A huge length of stonewall contains nearly 250 coats of arms of knights. It connects five structures commonly known as the English, Italian, German, French and the Snake towers. Wonder around the ancient grounds, through decorated archways and rooms to the tower top for stunning views over the harbour and horizon.
