At night well light up - good for photos. History explained on notice board. Think it goes back to 4,000 BC. Lovely old tree beside the tomb with some sort of hollowed out fire/oven in the trunk - with full set of leaves etc. Beside 2 very good restaurants - Tsisiki and La Bachi

bit of history, some information given. i like to find stuff like this embedded in the current life. Like in Italy. if this whets your appetite go to Xanthos for importance if not spectacle and Patora for scale and a well-earned post-meander dip.

Its a tomb and it's old! It's situated in the middle of the street in the old town, hard to miss really. Its well preserved but there is not much information on the sign so it's worth a photo but that's about it really.

This part of Turkey is crawling with Lycian tombs and this is an easy to find and quite impressive example of one, so is well worth the (very) short walk from the centre of Kas to find it. To get to it from the inland corner of the main square (with the statue of Ataturk behind you) just follow the... More

The Lions Tomb in Kas is very good preserved. It is near the old part of the city and easy to find. If you are in Kas, have a look on it!

This is a must see when you are in Kas. It is up the hill on the street that is pedestrian only. Beautiful site and the little streets around are beautiful as well.

We wandered across the tomb what walking around town. It's about the size of the tombs you see else where. Excellent commentary on the board next to the tomb. Locals sit in the shade that it provides. Restaurants surrounding it are expensive.

Start at the statue of Attaturk and walk up the Uzun Carsi slope, peppered with lovely local quality shops. Turn first right if you want to eat at the fab Naturel restaurant. Otherwise continue up the hill, bobbing in and out of the boutiques. Your reward is to sit and marvel at this ancient tomb, plonked in the middle of... More
