Did you know that the city of Marmaris, previously known as Physkos, among many other historical features, is recognized by its landmark castle that sits at the peak of the hilltop in the Old Town district. Based on the records from history, the castle has been there since 3000 B.C. The castle has  been occupied by many civilizations since then. The known Caria region, during the Hellenistic age, it was invaded by Alexander the Great. The castle during that time, held a very strategic value.

In the 17th century, the castle is mentioned by writer Evliya Celebi, as being rebuilt by Kanuni Sultan Suleyman in 1522. Since 1979, the castle has been renovated while restoring it to its original condition and  is now a lovely museum with seven galleries, the largest is an exhibition hall. If your gulet cruise Turkey travels bring you to Marmaris, it is a lovely visit to see the castle, and even better, the panoramic views are amazing, making it quite ideal for adding to your holiday photo and video gallery.
