  • Although we have not visited directly the Museum (Marmaris Centre we got always up in the evening, when it was closed), so we pretty much nachodili around the Fort. The narrow streets, kamené houses, historical buildings, interesting people. In addition, the nights were pretty Street lit, creating a wonderful atmosphere which this historical centre of Marmaris is. Definitely worth it to go through here and unwind from the bustle of the main promenade on the coast.

  • Lived in Icmeler and virtually every day in Marmaris or leisure. And in this museum-fortress got to expand their horizons. Entrance fee and not expensive-8. The museum itself-not the biggest attraction, more like the path himself. Small colorful Turkish streets, near the sea with beautiful yachts and a ship and, of course, the mere sight of the city and sea views from the fortress itself.

  • Very cozy place, old alleyways, but surprisingly there is no smell, everything beautifully ... Once there could get their divine shelter the pilgrims, the fortress is a later build. I wish many visit Marmaris, Turkey does not have believed in the better city, cozy and clean.
