Lycian Rock Tombs, Dalyan

4.7
See Lycian Rock Tombs, one of the ancient architectural wonders of Turkey, carved into the cliffs facing the town of Dalyan. Built around the year 400 BCE, their temple-like facade indicates that the tombs were built for kings and queens. Due to safety concerns, and in order to protect the tombs from being damaged, visitors are not allowed to go up the cliff. You can, however, take a closer look by catching a boat across the river and then going for a stroll along the path at its base.
