The name of Bodrum derives from “Petronium”, named after the Hospitaller Castle of St. Peter.
The site was formerly known as Halikarnassus (greek) or Halikarnas (turkish).
Bodrum was famous for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World & it was famous as well for being the homeland of the Father of the Written History: ¡Herodotus!.
The reminiscence of such a landmark of HISTORY in capital letters can be tasted in a hidden gem of a secret garden & oasis which smells of figs and flowers and sights a vast horizon…
