Kayakoy, Fethiye

4.3
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Fethiye
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.

    A little history on the sumptuous texture and the fact that you have to be connected. Visit download and read information from a foreign channel. Water in your bag. Exhausting and 3-3.5 hour walk. Often you can stop to take pictures. Have the flag field on the Hill. Double POV nice. Artisan juice 2 ₺ sells to. So they knew the best place where İsmail's. Don't look for someone else. Tea and a brioche are highly successful. Worth the trip. I think it's really a pity that the Government has done nothing. A region that deserves a lot of the ...

Where to stay in Fethiye

The multifaceted seaside region of Fethiye offers an equally diverse array of accommodations. In the immediate town, guesthouses with basic rooms or dormitory-style accommodations sit just a short walk from the marina, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. North of town along the coast, you'll discover a strip of many inexpensive seaside hotels. For a more secluded holiday, venture inland among the valleys and hills to one of the guesthouses or fully equipped cottages. If it's authenticity you're after, seek the privacy of a secluded inn in the heart of the local villages. Here you'll trade convenience for coziness and hospitality.
