Located close by Fethiye, Telmessos takes its name from the sun god Apollo’s son. Although the ancient texture has remained under modern Fethiye, the excavated structures can be seen.

Leaning against the skirts of Mount Mendos, Telmessos has everything to offer from its ancient theater and rock-cut tombs to the charming beaches that meet the Mediterranean Sea. The wonderful union of blue and green is at its best in this ancient city of natural beauty.
