The Castle of the Knights of St John

After the castle in Izmir was destroyed in 1402, the Ottoman Empire granted the Knights of Rhodes to build another elsewhere.

The Knights of St. john used stone from the fallen remains of the Mausoleum and burned marble in pits to produce lime. Taking almost a century to complete, the castle remains one of the most intact relics of the era.
