Located between Fethiye and Kalkan, the ancient city of Patara is known as the birth place of the mythological God of the Sun, Apollo. In the passage of time, the ancient port in Patara which once thrived as a capital of the Lycian League, has been covered with sand.
Scattered towards the surrounding hills, the ruins consist predominantly of sacred places and a theater. The magnificent beaches adorn the shores of this ancient port city. Visitors looking for crystal clear blue sea and bright sun are welcome here.
