MİLAS & BECİN CASTLE

Beçin Castle is located on the steep rock mass on the edge of Milas Plain. The ruins on the slopes to the north of the castle show that this area was used as a necropolis in ancient times. In 2007, a child’s grave belonging to the Early Bronze Age was found. Small sources in the soil tell us about this place and prove that it was used in 3000 BC. Since it was easy to defend, it was used as an administrative center from Byzantium to the Ottoman Empire. Beçin Castle, which is used as a museum today, is one of the wonderful places where you can see the beautiful view of the Milas Plain.

Then we go to the Sarcophagus of Hekatomnus, the ruler of Caria at the beginning of the 4th century BC. He was the satrap (governor) of Caria for Persia. According to some scientists, discovering and finding the 2400-year-old Tomb of King Hekatomnus monument turned the world’s face to Milas. It has been described that the Tomb of Hekatomnus inspired the Mausoleum in Bodrum. The Tomb of Hecatomnus monument was rightfully included in UNESCO’s temporary World Heritage list in 2012.
