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.

At the top of Slippery Street, this tomb is impressive. However they are scattered all around the town and surrounds. At least this one doesn't need much effort to visit.

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.
