A number of Lycian rock tombs are situated above Fethiye, obviously they were broken open thousands of years ago I would guess probably during the Roman period. They are interesting to see and as they are situated above Fethiye you also have a good panoramic view of the town from here.

Ancient tombs cut into the hillsides. We saw them from our yacht and then explored. Totally uncommercialised and original. It is as if you are discovering these sites for the very first time. Amazing.

I checked this place out with family back in April 2005 and it was a wonderful place to see. The day was overcast and cloudy but it didn't ruin any of it. The walks are pretty hard going, but because it was cool it didn't seem to much hassle. The views are insane and the ancient tombs really do leave... More

Fleeting visit during the Dalyan River trip that included the Mud and Sulphur Bats and Turtle Beach Trip with Seaside Travel. We had an excellent narration on the Tombs and Ruined City by the Guide.

From a distance these ancient rock tombs looked intriguing, close up they are amazing. Carved/hewn from the solid living rock, these tombs are testimony to the expertise of Lycian stonemasons who carved these tombs as the last resting places of their Kings. We found the walk a bit steep for senior travelers, but Oh my, was it worth it! What... More

If you like history then you will love these. I walked through the empty streets of the Old Town and onward for about 15 minutes just before 8 am. Apart from a few old guys sitting outside cafes drinking tea and an ancient chancer offering to show me the way most people seemed to be still asleep. The small ticket... More

Not as good as Tolls or Dalayan but worth walking up to if you're down there. Can see everything from the road so don't pay the entrance fee.

Very beautiful and set in side of a massive hill. The historic story is quite interesting about it all but plenty of walking is involved. Not great for kids.
