Now in ruins, Tlos once served as the bustling urban center of ancient Lycia. According to legend, this site was home of the hero Bellerophon. One of the city's rock tombs allegedly belongs to him and bears a relief portraying the hero riding his famous horse, Pegasus. After the Lycians, the Romans took over the city, building a stadium and an amphitheatre whose remains you can still see. You can also view monuments of Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. The site is quite large and hilly, and a thorough exploration requires a bit of hiking over uneven terrain, so be sure to bring adequate footwear. Plan my Fethiye trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Historical landmark and no context of history. You need to buy a ticket to see the place and the most you can do is take photos. There’s no side note about the place or it’s significance. Beautiful view of the city from here though.
  • The ruins are very-well preserved. The area is pretty wide and at the top part the view is very good. You can see whole area. Only sad part for me was unable to go inside the theatre.
