I highly recommend to visit Kas if you are in the neighborhood. There are a few tombs in Kas. We saw 4. Walk around the downtown and port and enjoy the tombs and the old charming buildings.

You see that nice Lycian ruin which has lions as well just when you do a small tour of Kas central area. It is in middle of the street in between shops. It is really nice to see it and it is just standing in the middle of the street so it is also costless. I recommend but i think... More

Just interesting to find it at the top of a hill of a very pretty back street. Lovely shopping as one walks up the road and pretty street lined with old houses covered in boganvillia.

With young children, the tomb was quite a hike up the cobbled street. Not too exciting for the young ones and I believe the shops on the way the hill are the bigger attraction to visitors.

A Lycian 'house tomb' situated in the middle of a downtown street. Richly ornamented and very photogenic.

An old Lykian stone tomb in the middle of downtown, popular background for photographs. A must see while walking the streets.

If you're in Kas it'd be silly to miss it! It's not spectacular (go to the amphitheatre for that!) but is worth seeing this historical phenomenon in the middle of town. I wouldnt climb inside- it smells of urine!

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
