This was a short drive from our hotel. Historical ruins of the city of Halicarnassus. You can walk around and it also has a description to read about the origin. Its free entry.

Nice historical sight to walk to, worth going to see. No entry fee. Really close to the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus (1 of the seven wonders of the ancient world).

This place must have once been quite a lovely area. Sadly, any preservation/restoration seems to have ground to a halt.

Any maintenance that is carried out must be missing all the old plastic bottles chucked into nearby bushes. Must also be missing the kilos of orange peels strewn around the Roman grave. The Old Moat also has its share of trash.

As for peace and quiet … forget it! Adjacent traffic arteries provide a never-ending background din, while motorcycles roaring along the site’s pathways simply exacerbate the racket!

Still, there is some colour provided by bushes that surround the site.

Nice to see some culture in a place seemingly overwhelmed by cheap modernisation, but again, poorly maintained and little information. Nice to appreciate the age however, and impressive despite all.

It was a hot day but an interesting historical site that is worth a visit. Easy to find and easy to access.

As in the case of the Halicarnassus Mausoleum, there is not much left to see here either. In addition, the place is abandoned and unmaintained. The only interesting thing that you can do is to climb up what is left from the old gate for a panoramic view of the place. Free access.

The one of the two monumental gates of the 7 km long ancient city wall of Halicarnassus. The wall, constructed of andesite stone blocks, was built by the king Mausollos in the 4th century BC. Although, the place is shamefully neglected, worth seeing when visiting Bodrum, Turkey.

The "gate" is gradually being cared for as an important historic site, many years of history and building skills that some of it still stands, interestingly many locals still use it as a " gate" route on a daily basis.

Yes it's a part of ancient history, but place is too dirty, glass, bottles, beer cans all over. They should do a very big cleanup.
