Castle of St Peter

Perched on a rocky promontory overlooking the harbor, the striking Castle of St Peter is an instantly recognizable Bodrum landmark and one of the city’s top tourist attractions. Built by the Knights Hospitaller of Rhodes in the 15th century, the castle was designed by German architect Heinrich Schlegelholt and partially crafted from the stones of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Despite losing its since-reconstructed minaret in WWI bombings, the castle remains a remarkably preserved example of medieval architecture, encircled by its imposing sea walls and including a moat, a mosque added by Süleyman the Magnificent in 1522 and five towers - the English, Italian, German, French and Snake towers. Today the castle is open to visitors and hosts the impressive Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology. It also provides a dramatic backdrop for cultural events and festivals throughout the year.

Practical Info

The Castle of St Peter is located in Bodrum Harbor, just east of the marina. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. In order to access the castle grounds, you’ll need to pay the 20 YTL entrance fee to the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
