is a modern market town built on the site of 400 BC Telmessos. Much
of the old town and some remaining Lycian ruins were deleted from
Turkey's map by a huge quake in 1958.
Still visible are an ancient Roman theatre, bits of a ruined crusader
fortress and some Lycian rock tombs on the steep hillside behind the
town - a popular sunset spot. 7km (5 miles) out of town there is also
the ghost town of Kaya Koyu, abandoned in 1923.
Fethiye is fast growing and well located for boat tours or
exploring the region, but fundamentally less attractive and a lot
less fun than its neighbour, Olu
Deniz, though a lot quieter.
