Bodrum

The Underwater Archaeology Museum

Thanks to efforts of Turkish and foreign scholars who carried out successful archaeological digs - both on land and at sea, the castle has turned into one of the greatest Underwater Archaeology museums in the world. The old Spanish Chapel now houses the famous Yassiada Wreck. The Glass Exhibition is stunning, displaying glass objects discovered at Serçe Limani and the hull of the ship.

The Myndos Gate

This entrance gate to Halicarnassus is thought to have been constructed in 360 BC. When Alexander the Great came to claim the city, he was unable to pass the deep, broad trench in front of the gate. When the gate was restored a couple of years ago, archaeologists found the remainders of the trench. Next to the gate there is a Turkish cemetery and some vaulted tombs from Hellenistic and Roman periods.
