Lycian Rock Tombs
The entrance to the Amyntas Tomb was carved out of the rock so as to look like a temple portico, with two Ionic-style columns topped by a triangular pediment. Grave robbers appear to have broken into the tomb a long time ago, as is clear from the missing panel in the bottom-right-hand side of the doorway.
About 500 meters down and to the right (east) is a cluster of several smaller tombs carved into the cliff face; very little is known about the identities of those buried here.
In addition to seeing the tombs themselves, visitors who make the hike up will be rewarded with fabulous views of the town and the surrounding coastline. The best time to visit (and consequently the busiest) is at sunset.
Admission is 5 TL and it’s open May to October 8am - 7pm, November to April 8am - 5pm.
