Castle of St Peter

In 1402, the Knights of St John gave Bodrum this spectacular castle, which overlook the harbour. The Bodrum Castle has since had a long and fascinating history, having served as a military base, a chapel, a mosque, a prison, a fort, and currently serves as a museum. Named as the Castle of St Petrus or Petronium, it has a square-format plan. Admire the French, Italian, English, Gatineau and Snake Towers. The medieval castle houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, showcasing the treasures that were excavated during renovation. On display is a delightful collection of amphorae (vases), ancient glass, bronze, clay, and iron relics.
