Kayakoy, Fethiye

(4.3/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Walk the empty narrow streets lined with roofless stone buildings at Kayakoy, a modern ruin deserted as the result of repatriation in the 1920s. This ghost town, originally built in the 1700s, was home to 2,000 Greek Orthodox residents before the Greco-Turkish War. Today it features nearly 500 abandoned homes, derelict fountains and cisterns, and two scavenged churches, which retain some of their original wall paintings and ceramic floor mosaics. Several houses have been restored. Visit the private museum to learn the history of the town. The valley covered in vineyards and the surrounding hills offer many hiking opportunities. Make Kayakoy part of your personalized Fethiye itinerary using our Fethiye family vacation planner.

  • It's not quite this good at riding experience before traveling to walk through, but so did the mountain pass was tricky in both, but I can't see anywhere where this mysterious feeling.

  • This ghost town left in my soul an indelible travel. Before the trip, be sure to read about this place on the Web, knowing his history, you will be able to experience all that the walls of the houses are Kajakjoja. Strolling through the village for more than five hours, a very interesting place, I advise everyone to visit.
