Antic Phaselis in Kemer photo

The ruins of the ancient Lycian city of Phaselis are located 10 kilometers to the south of Tekirova. At the time of Alexander the Great Phaselis was a big city and this great military leader stayed there during his campaigns against Persia.

Now Phaselis is a wonderful national park completely covered with century-old pines and cedars. The ruins of the Roman and Byzantine periods are well-preserved on the shore of the peninsula. It would be interesting to see the layout of an ancient city, amphitheatre, central square, bathhouses.

As a rule, they come to Phaselis for a day. About two hours will be quite enough to look around all the ruins of ancient city, and then you can have a rest in the shadow of huge pine-trees on the beach of Phaselis.
