The Bodrum Castle was built in 1404 by a German knight architect 
Heinrich Schlegelholt. The first walls were completed in 1437.

Like always with castles built by the Knight Hospitaller, each langue of the
order had its own tower.

The English Tower was finished in 1413 and there you can see the coats of
Henry IV of England.

and flowers, as you can see on next picture.
