Bodrum Peninsula’s Ancient Settlements

Bodrum Peninsula’s Ancient Settlements
There are 12 ancient settlements on Bodrum’s peninsula, the most famous of which is Halicarnasstos, once ruled by King Mausolus II.  For anyone with an interest in archaeology and nature a visit to any or all of the sites is recommended and from where the views are often stunning and impressive. The other ancient cities are:

Pedasa

This is at the top of a hill only accessible by foot.  The ruins sit in a circle with a diameter of 150m and mainly consist of inner castle walls and Leleg style tombs.

Telmossos (Guirece)

Located in the village of Guirece sitting atop a hill, are the remains of walls and towers dating from Hellenistic times and although there is no trace of it, it was said by historian Herodotus to have had a Temple of Apollo famed for its oracles.

Termera & the Castle (Kalesi) of Aspat

This Leleg city is only accessible by foot and is located on the top of a conical hill opposite the Aspat Cove in Akyarlar. The inner castle at the top was completely destroyed though parts of the lower wall are still standing.
