Mylasa is a very picturesque western Anatolian town, halfway between Söke and Bodrum. Though the population has recently expanded, it has lost none of its traditional flavour. Typical of the city are the old houses with overlying bay windows and courtyards.

On every Tuesday the biggest bazaar in the Aegean takes place there.

Mylasa was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Caria but in 350 BC, by order of King Mausolos it lost that position to Halicarnassos, because it had no harbour. However the city was never abandoned and is still a thriving hive of business.
