Bodrum Castle Plan

Visiting the castle is sure to be a memorable experience for any traveller, however, having a Bodrum Castle plan can add value to the adventure.

The Bodrum Castle is a complex of buildings, courtyards and towers, spread across 180 metres by 185 metres. With all the various levels, buildings and passageways, it can be easy to miss out some museum sections while exploring. Thus, a floor plan of the castle is essential for any traveller planning to visit.

The floor plan allows guests to quickly identify the different points of interest. With a plan, you can easily locate the different buildings, courtyards, and coffee shops. As a result, it allows you to focus on the areas that interest you the most.

The layout will also help you to find the best places to take photos. With so many architectural details and incredible views, it can be easy to miss out on some of the most impressive sights. If you have a floor plan, you can get the most out of your visit and ensure that any of the castle’s beauties won’t go unnoticed.

Credits for the Bodrum Castle Plan

Although I like to think that I know the castle by heart, preparing the Bodrum Castle Plan would not have been possible without getting help.

Google Earth is the number one tool which I extensively use for The Best of Bodrum, and my admiration for this incredible service is not limited to my blog. I also use it for various reasons, from trip planning to scheduling customer visits. It has helped me a lot with this article. In addition, I am grateful to the anonymous people who contributed to creating the 3D model of the castle.

The people who work at the castle deserve special thanks too because they always do their best to answer my endless questions. They are also responsible for placing informative signs across the castle, which provide the basis of the Bodrum Castle Plan.
