Marmaris Castle - Turkey

My friend Paul recently went on a trip to Turkey and one of the places he visited was Marmaris Castle. It is a beautiful little castle and he was kind enough to take some pictures for me and for us!

A little bit about the castle -

As with many other old castles this one has a long history of being some kind of fortification throughout the millennia. This one is believed to have been actually started with the city walls 5,000 years ago. That is pretty darn impressive.

A bit of history - People lived within the walls of it as recently as 1979 and the castle was registered as a monumental structure in 1983 and opened as a museum in 1991.

First Let's take a look at some pictures of the outside and grounds. The Castle does have a museum so on the next page we will take a look at some interesting things there.

I have four different pages about this Castle

 

 

 

 

Ok, let's continue and look at some things in the castle's museum

 

The Medieval Fortress: Castles, Forts, And Walled Cities Of The Middle Ages Medieval History Books)

The great walled castles of the medieval world continue to fascinate the modern world. Today, the remains of medieval forts and walls throughout Europe are popular tourist sites. Unlike many other books on castles, The Medieval Fortress is unique in its comprehensive treatment of these architectural wonders from a military perspective. The Medieval Fortress includes an analysis of the origins and evolution of castles and other walled defenses, a detailed description of their major components, and the reasons for their eventual decline. The authors, acclaimed fortification experts J.E. and H.W. Kaufmann, explain how the military strategies and weapons used in the Middle Ages led to many modifications of these structures. All of the representative types of castles and fortifications are discussed, from the British Isles, Ireland, France, Germany, Moorish Spain, Italy, as far east as Poland and Russia, as well as Muslim and Crusader castles in the Middle East. Over 200 photographs and 300 extraordinarily detailed technical drawings, plans, and sketches by Robert M. Jurga accompany and enrich the main text.
