Castle of St. Peter in Bodrum, Turkey

    Newer Older

    Castle of St. Peter - view from the theatre in Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus).

    The castle was constructed by the Knights Hospitaller in the 15th century during the crusades of the middle ages. The fortress became known as the Castle of St. Peter The Liberator because it served as the sole place of refuge for all Christians on the west coast of Asia Minor. The Knights kept a special breed of dog in the Castle, who could track down refugees and bring them to safety, much like the famous St. Bernard.
