Fethiye Travel Guide

Fethiye is built on the ancient city of Telmessos, which is one of the rare places where the settlement continues without interruption since it was established on the Mediterranean coast. The city was named after the son of the god Apollo, Poet Telmessos. It became an art-culture and economy center between Caria and Lycia.

He lived independently in different periods, joined the troops and was invaded. He joined the Attica-Delos Naval Union, which was formed among the Greek city states in the past, and was transferred to the Lycian League by the Lycian King Limyrian Pericles.

It has become an important commercial city where the seaways connecting Anatolia to the Mediterranean, the islands of Rhodes and Crete to the coasts of Egypt and western Europe. A few earthquakes recovered, but the 8.2 magnitude earthquake that hit in 1856 destroyed the city, and all its early ruins were poured into the sea.

In history, the name Anastasipolis later turned into Meğri. It was named Fethiye in 1934 in memory of one of the first pilots of the Ottoman Empire, Fethi Bey, the first aviation martyr in the history of Turkish aviation, with his plane crashing near Damascus on March 3, 1914.

Very few of its remains have survived to the present day. The traces of a small theater of 5000 people, which are thought to belong to the Hellenistic Period, are not seen. The theater, which is understood to have been used as an arena during the Byzantine period, is now suitable for use by 1500 people.

Today, the castle, which is seen at the top of the slope where the city center of Fethiye was established, is from the Knights of Genoese and Rhodes in the 15th century. Amyntas Rock Tombs are the most important among the rock tombs carved into the slopes. Both sides of the cover are decorated with frescoes depicting the wars in which scenes from the person's life are animated.

The regions you will choose as accommodation in Fethiye may change according to your expectation. If you want a lively night life, stay in Hisarönü or Ölüdeniz. If you want to stay in a virgin place, Faralya, Kabak Bay is the most beautiful. Butterfly Valley may be suitable if you say I stay in a tent. Calis region is the most beautiful if you want to go from where I am.
