The whole Lycian coast abounds with massive mountain ranges and densely forested regions along the coast of southwestern Turkey, also known as "Turquoise Coast".

In this stunning region, craggy limestone mountains plunge into azure seas, small islands and evidence of the Greek, Lycian and Roman empires are strewn around like half buried treasures, linked together by coastal trails that used to be the trade routes of antiquity.

As the landscape is wild, so were the men who lived here.
The Lycians enjoyed a reputation for independence and fought for it tooth and nail, often to the last man.
The ancient Lycians were one of the most enigmatic people of antiquity.

Many Lycian relics remain visible today, especially their distinctive rock-cut tombs in the sides of cliffs in the region.
Around twenty major sites remain today with the Lycians' unusual architecture dominating the breathtaking unspoiled land of Lycia.

Although little historical record has been left behind them, what has been discovered reveals the fascinating history and culture of an outstanding civilization.

Surrounded by a wild mountainous area, Lycia offers a spectacular scenery, a panorama of history and mythology. Many of those Myths are related to some of the Ancient settlements and shall be told here.

This coastline is truly spectacular. Rugged cliffs of pine forests plunge into turquoise sea. Between them are small bays of sand and shingle accessible only by boat.
In ancient times the Lycians, mentioned in Homer's Iliad, settled here and the ruins of their cities and majestic rock tombs can easily be seen. Wander round a deserted dusty ruin, stop for a dip and a simple lunch at a lokanta and you will discover that you can still experience the rugged pleasures of old Turkey.
