Marmaris is a coastal town, a port city and a tourist destination on the southwest Mediterranean coast of Turkey, in the Mugla Province. Marmaris splits the Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea along with a long and narrow peninsula.
Marmaris is one of the Turkey’s most popular holiday towns and largest resorts on the Aegean coast. With its surroundings, long coastline, outstanding landscape of pine-covered hills, isolated bays and inlets, wonderful beaches, ancient cities, marinas and every kind of attractions; Marmaris welcomes about 400,000 people during summer season.
The town of Marmaris is located at the meeting place of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas, set against a backdrop of pine clad hills and it combines natural beauty with an amazing taste for life. The old part of Marmaris is a residential area around the castle. There are old houses, all under preservation order and the narrow streets leading to them. This example of Mugla architecture is worthy to explore.
The town later began to spread out around the castle hill and along the shore, but the growth of tourism resulted in housing being prohibited along the shoreline and planning permission granted only to tourist hotels.
If you`d like to enjoy a gorgeous view of the city, then the Marmaris Castle awaits you. It was reconstructed by Suleiman the Magnificent, (1494-1566) during his Rhodes campaign. The castle also has a great archaeology museum.
