Windmills, Bodrum City

#20 of 115 in Things to do in Bodrum City
Landmark · Tourist Spot
Climb the hill above the town to reach Windmills, which date back to the 18th century. Nestled high above the crowded streets and hotels, this secluded spot features seven windmills in varying states, ranging from eerie and crumbling to newly restored. The locals used them until the 1970s, after which they were left at the mercy of wind, rain, and frost. On a clear day you should be able to see Bodrum, Gumbet, and even the Greek island of Kos from the site. Be aware that the area surrounding the mills can be a bit run-down. Make Windmills a centerpiece of your Bodrum City vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bodrum City trip itinerary builder app.
