Fethiye;The history of Fethiye,or with its ancient name Telmessos,which is the only centre where settlement continued from its establishment on Mediterranean shore band until today,goes back to 3000 BC in accordance with some philological determinations and monuments.

Many earthquakes that had happened since the archaic period and new settlement understanding caused the disappearance of archaic period buildings by time. But the graves engraved into the rocks at the south of the modern city and the sarcophagies at different locations of 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 its inscription on the left ante wall.The theater 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.

Fethiye Museum The idea of exhibiting the opuses belonging to the region in a location in the district that is rich in terms of Archaeology belongs to the authorities of that period at the beginning of 1960s and the first core of the museum has occurred in those years.

After that,large scaled stone opuses collected from the surrounding have been protected in a depot;with the building constructed in 1987,contemporary museum understanding became dominant and the opuses have been served to the visitors.

Fethiye Museum consists of two halls,one for Archaeology and the other for ethnography.Almost all of the opuses exhibited in these two halls have been compiled from Fethiye and its surroundings.A big part of the opuses being exhibited in the Archaeology part consists of ceramic group opuses.

The opuses in the hall have been subjected to a chronological order among themselves.Most important of the opuses covering the period from 3000 BC to the end of the Byzantine period is undoubtedly the stela that had great contributions in decoding Lycian language.There is a text on this stela which is written in three different languages.Another important opus of the museum is the “Sculpture of Young Girl with Dove” and the sculpture of two women beside it.The sculpture of the girl with dove is related with Arthemis cult and it is important in terms of its showing the existence of an Arthemis temple in the city in ancient period.In the ethnography hall,there are various hand weaving samples, hand embroideries,robes and silver Jewellery special to the region.

In addition,a “dastar” loom that is in active condition with all its units is also exhibited in this part.In the open part of the museum,large stone blocked opuses,sarcophagus graves and “Izraza Monument”,which is a product of Lycian culture are exhibited.                                                                                                                                                                     Fethiye Fish Market;The Fethiye fish market is the place where you will find the best,the tastiest,freshest and cheapest seafood restaurants in Fethiye.The fish market takes up a large area of a market square that was once on the outskirts of the old town.Fethiye fish market is not far from the yacht marina and now lies embraced by the rest of the city.It is actually an old caravansary where travellers came and stayed overnight and housed their camels or donkeys in the same building.The Fethiye Fish Market is much more than a fishy square.It has life at all times of the day and night and has beautiful trees and plants along with a lovely Ottoman tiled marble fountain.There are hanging lights which lend such an unique atmosphere to such a wonderful place.

No wonder this site is the landmark of is a nice way to spend an afternoon exploring those amazing carved rocks and admire the sunset over the city of Fethiye.Dating back to 400 BC,the Rock Tombs were built by the Lycians,a population that lived at the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.Believing in the afterlife,they used to carve tombs into the sides of hills and mountains for the deceased prominent members of their society.The deceased were buried with their most valued possessions, believing that these objects would accompany them to the afterlife.

Various Lycian rock tombs exist along the provinces of Antalya and Mugla on the southern coast of Turkey,which was once the Lycian Coast,but the most impressive ones are in Fethiye.The most impressive and famous Tomb of Fethiye is the “Tomb of Amyntas”,not only because it is the highest of them all and the best preserved compared to others,also it has fascinating views of Fethiye city.An old inscription on the tomb states that it is the resting place of Amyntas,the son of Hermapias,but nothing more is known about the family or the tomb.In order to get to the Amyntas Rock Tomb , you have to walk up the 296 stone steps towards it.The tomb is very impressive from the close.It has two carved stone columns and a small entry on the right side but it is empty inside.Take your time and relax at the tomb, admiring the wonderful views of Fethiye.
