Ruin · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Admire Ancient Rock Tombes, carved into the cliff face on a hill above town. These well-preserved tombs are easily accessible from the town, given that the ancient Lycians preferred to live with their deceased nearby. Catch your breath after the steep uphill climb by enjoying a drink and meal at the restaurant conveniently located close to the tombs at the top of the hill. Capture a panoramic view of the surrounding cliffs and town from your position near the tombs. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear, given the uphill climb.

  • Close to Fethiye bus station. Is a complex very small and not very expensive. When I vsited there weren't a lot of people. Is sad that most of the tumbs are full of graffitti and garbage  more »
  • Not really much to see, there are quite a lot of steps 5-10mins to walk up. You get an amazing view and can take pictures but that’s about it..  more »
  • Amazing rock tombs on in the cliff face. Well worth a visit to see. An awesome view over the bay... I can see why they buried their dead here! Only 7tl to walk up for a closer view and to support the Turkish antiquities. Beautiful cafe next door to have a coffee and admire the view😃
  • Nice history here, the few over fethiye from the top is great worth the visit, a few steps to the main tomb but not a hard climb
