History:

Although it is not certain when Marmaris was founded, in the 6th century BC the site was known as Physkos  and considered part of Caria.According to the historian Herodotus, there had been a castle on the site since 3000 BC. In 334 BC, Caria was invaded by Alexander the Great and the castle of Physkos was besieged.


The 600 inhabitants of the town realised that they had no chance against the invading army and burned their valuables in the castle before escaping to the hills with their women and children. The invaders, well aware of the strategic value of the castle, repaired the destroyed sections to house a few hundred soldiers before the main army returned home.

Marmaris CastleThe town became known as Marmaris during the period of the Beylik of Mente┼če; the name derives from the Turkish word mermer, Greek m├ármaron (marble) in reference to the rich deposits of marble in the region, and the prominent role of the town's port in the marble trade
