Tlos, Fethiye
(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Now in ruins, Tlos once served as the bustling urban center of ancient Lycia. According to legend, this site was home of the hero Bellerophon. One of the city's rock tombs allegedly belongs to him and bears a relief portraying the hero riding his famous horse, Pegasus. After the Lycians, the Romans took over the city, building a stadium and an amphitheatre whose remains you can still see. You can also view monuments of Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. The site is quite large and hilly, and a thorough exploration requires a bit of hiking over uneven terrain, so be sure to bring adequate footwear. Put Tlos at the forefront of your travel plans using our Fethiye travel itinerary planner.

  • I went a few times, I found a place worth a visit, but only this is if you do not make plans for saklıkente giderkee uğranıp visits will be more sensible.

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable and helped us to appreciate the extent of the ruins. Especially liked the Lycian rock tombs. 
  • One of the big cities of the Lycian civilization in the sensuality segment, must-visit. Has already planted Saklıkent tours and gives enough time. However, as is the case everywhere, maintenance free, no service!! Know how to get money from the State but at the gate entrance. On the way up, you do not have to be very careful safety as it descends.

  • A place that holds diverse historical events.
  • Super view on top! Highly recommend this place!
  • Everyone should visit this place - I went from the resort of Olu Deniz but it is also accessible from Patara, kas etc. The Lycian tombs at the top of the hill are a struggle to reach but worth it.
  • Fantastic scenery very friendly people
  • Looked good from the jeep safari. Prominent position in the hillside with tombs cut into the face of the cliff.
