Fethiye – Ancient Cities

Many earthquakes that occurred since the archaic period, and new settlement understanding, caused the disappearance of archaic period buildings as time progressed. But the graves engraved into the rocks at the south of the modern city and the sarcophaguses at different locations in the city, are evaluated as ancient ruins that reached today from the archaic period.

The most famous, and the most magnificent of the rock graves is undoubtedly Amyntas grave in accordance with the inscription on the left ante wall. The theatre ruin that is discovered in the excavations carried out by the museum in recent years provides some information about the layout and organization of the city in archaic period.
