Fethiye, Turkey

This Turkish town is located on the site of ancient Telmessos, the capital of the Lycians. Their rock-cut tombs honeycomb the mountainsides, especially the impressive tomb of Amyntas from around 350 BCE. Manmade sites include more tombs at nearby Pinara and the ghost town of Kayakoy. Natural splendors include the dramatic gorge of Saklikent.
