Historic attractions in Kalkan

Holidays to Kalkan provide an ideal base to get your history fix at some of Turkey’s most fascinating sites.

  • Explore Lycian tombs, temples and colonnades at the UNESCO-listed Xanthos. The site contains the atmospheric ruins of the ancient capital of Lycia and dates back to the 4th century BC.

  • Want to explore a real-life ghost town? The village of Kayakoy was abandoned in a population exchange in 1923. Now, the preserved town is an eerie display of hundreds of deserted stone houses and churches.
  • Get your camera ready for panoramic views from the ancient ruins of Tlos. Once one of the most significant cities in ancient Lycia, you’ll explore rock tombs, fortifications and baths.
  • Visit the Antiphellos Theatre in Kas and stay after dark. The rock-cut Doric Tomb rests above the theatre and is illuminated at night.
