It's in the middle of the city of Kas it's at the top of the road from Barcelona bar. It's nice and has a good explanation of what it is. And also beautiful sculptures... it's worth the 15min to look at.

We loved Kas - it's such a lovely town - with little gems like this tomb scattered at various points. The tomb is located in a shopping area on the eastern side of town (just up from the marina). It's very easy to have a stroll which takes in the tomb, the theatre and the marina (all free of charge)... More

Kas was a delightful Town to visit. It was small enough to find our way around. The Lions Tomb was close to the main village and was representative of the antiquities from ancient Lycean civilizations.While not as remarkable as the many Theatres/Auditoriums thar litter this amazing country it gives one more glimpse into ancient times and whets your appetite for...

History in the heart of the village. Lovely that it's being maintained. Worth having a wander to find it.

If you are in downtown Kas you cannot miss it. This tomb is one of the best I have seen in the area.

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
