If you are in Kas anyway, it is worth seeking this out amid the little streets ad stopping to read about its history. It is only a ten minute stop but take a look.

I had the best time here in this small town located in Southern Turkey. I took a sailboat ride along the coast to view the beautiful coves around the mountains!

Lions Tomb is located in the heart of the resort town of Kas. Streets near the Lions Tomb resemble art gallery in the open air, a lot of designer shops and wonderful restaurants.

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.

This attraction is not impressive by its size but by its fine construction, its interesting inscriptions and its age dating back to the 4th century BC. Definitely a must-see when in Kas.

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...
