Lycian tomb at the top of the Main Street. Photographed by many as it is large, but better ones around.

It is pretty crazy that a tomb that was made 2000 years ago, is situated down a quiet street in Kas town. Really lovely area of town, with interesting boutiques & of course a tomb with lions on it!

Very nice atmosphere around this place. You can look down the street with many boutiques or have an ice-cream in the kiosk nearby and enjoy this part of town.

This ancient tomb caught our eye as we were walking through the streets of Kas. It felt surreal seeing something that dates from over 2000 years ago. A definite photo stop!

The lions tomb is in our "to do" list. After a good meal while we are walking and shopping we saw the tomb suddenly at the end of the street. It was so close...the tomb was impressive. By the way, there was a towel store (sharing the picture) on the left hand side going to the tomb, that store was... More

It is just located in the center worth visiting. It looks like many of the other tombs from Lycians.

Apart from being a large, rather beautiful 2400 year old piece of history, carved from a single piece of rock and boasting undecyphered inscriptions, what gets me every time I see the Lion's Tomb is its location - opposite the carpet store at the top of Kas's main shopping street.

You have to travel to Phellos (20 mins outside kas) and take a great walk along a part of the lycian way. Once there there are lots of ruins and ancient engineering feats to admire, the lions toumb being just one of them.
