Photographer's Note

his is why everybody falls in love with bodrum..
another thesis id the electromagnetic effect the magmatic rocks which calls you back ..

The Castle of St. Peter the Liberator of the Order of the Knights of the Hospital of St. John of Rhodes - to give it its full, comprehensive title - is Bodrum's acclaimed landmark. Over the period of six centuries it has served as a military garrison, a compound enclosing a tiny village, and even as a fortress prison. Today it houses one of the finest museums of nautical archaeology in the world.
The Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology in The Bodrum Castle of The Knights of St.John is not just a dusty collection of lifeless relics, it is an original, creative and exiting experience.
It is a trip into a fascinating past through to life in exhibits that take you back in time into the worlds of ancient mariners who sailed to meet their destiny shipwrecked on Anatolian shores or to the medieval Age of Knights who built this castle from stones that once were part of one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient World: The Mausoleum of Halicarnasus.
