This is well hidden by a big tree so yo don't get so much of a view of it. It's amazing it's so old but there are many tombs in ancient sites nearby with a much nicer location to take it all in. Often had...More

This is quite a good Lycian tomb to view as it is in the centre of the town of Kas and easy to access. The tomb is large and has Lycian writing on it. Worth a visit.

This is over 2000 years old. And still in good condition. You can sit down on the ledges at the bottom of the tomb to escape the hot sun. Impressive!
