İnformation About Marmaris

Marmaris is an ancient city and although it’s not known exactly when the town was first established historians believe there has been a castle here since 3000BC. Marmaris is best known from the 6th century BC though, when it was known by its original name, Physkos, and was part of the Carian Empire. A couple of hundred years after the Carians took control, the old castle at Marmaris was besieged by Alexander the Great, then in 138BC the town was ceded to the Romans. Marmaris came to light again in 1425AD when it became part of the mighty Ottoman Empire, and in 1521 the Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent ordered that a new castle be built. He changed the name of the town from Physkos to Mimaras, and this later changed to the current form of Marmaris.

Marmaris is a port city and a tourist destination on the Mediterranean coast, located in southwest Turkey, in the Muğla Province. A gorgeous backdrop of pine-clad mountains looms behind the seaside resort of Marmaris in southwest Turkey. Popular as a cruise ship and yacht port and with the British budget holiday crowd, Marmaris offers an abundance of fast food restaurants, the restored castle of Suleyman the Magnificent and an appealing cobblestoned old quarter.
