Set high on a cliff these are an amazing sight. You are transported back to another time as you gaze at the lovely carved entrances to the tombs. What an amazing way to bury the dead - the view from them is delightful. I would choose such a resting place too if I had the opportunity! It is amazing how... More

These are likely the northern most tip of the remnants of an ancient civilization that stretches thousands of mils down south along the Mediterranean...down to the baking deserts of northern Saudi Arabia.(medain Saleh) and mid way in Jordan at the well known site Petra along the Wadi roum. if you are interested in history and ancient civilizations, its a must...

Hi Guys, That why we went to Fethiye. Those tombs are spectacular! Great details.Views are also amassing. Tombs are still well preserved - shame about graffiti... Great history behind this place. 500 metre away you can find another complex - in private garden where chickens are running free!!! I hope that one day they will open those to the public.... More

We saw these tombs whilst on a river boat to turtle bay and they were amazing. Definitely worth a visit with a lovely river boat ride too.

After seeing the tombs above Fethiye from the dolmus about a dozen times, I finally left the family by the pool. A short walk up the hill from the dolmus drop off point you will find this great view point over Fethiye. A lot of stairs to climb but a great place to sit and watch the hussle & bustle... More

These tombs are situated on the cliffs around the town of Fethiye. it is impressive to see the old and new together but if you do venture up to the tombs (5 TL entry) please be aware these ancient monuments are ruined by graffiti. The view over Fethiye town from up on the tombs is amazing however.

If you are into seeing tombs and ruins then this is the trip for you. A climb up the top of a hill gave stunning views and the chance to look inside tombs along with the surrounding ampitheatres and roman baths. A stop for lunch in the hills (very basic) and then onto the gorge. A little diappointed with the... More
