  • The ancient city of Telmessos, leaving its roots in ancient times, long a strong independence from Lycia, according to legend, was founded by as much as themselves, the cult of Apollo which was maintained in the city for centuries. Many have survived to this day rock tombs and sarcophagi, standing around which formed the modern streets of Fethiye. Often the sarcophagus with the lid inverted boat stand right in the middle of the roadway, and houses closely adjacent to the rock tombs. Fortress, to the ruins where you can climb up to admire the views of Fethiye, also exists at this place since ancient times. Well preserved amphitheatre, referring to the period of Roman rule already. Sightseeing of ancient Telmessosa need at least half a day.

  • The ancient settlement is located near the village of Dodurga and represents a complex of Lycian sarcophagi scattered over a wide area. The main thing here-no novodela! As standing 2000 years ago, sarcophagi and the tower is now in the vegetable gardens of the local residents. Very authentic place.
