Shared a taxi with another couple and the driver took us up a very stony track to the centre of an archaeological delight over 2000 years old! Loads of tombs and amphitheatre in middle of nowhere, just off Kas to Demre road near Yavus.

An amazing place. Secluded and untouched. Great place for a picnic surrounded by history and goats grazing in the nearby field.
