Fabulous Fethiye!

Our third visit to the lovely Turkish town of Fethiye, and a few new things to photograph!

Firstly, we visited the Lycian tombs carved into the hillside above the town, sadly disfigured by graffiti but interesting nonetheless and giving some amazing views.

We also visited the ancient fortress at Tlos, about an hour's drive away. A fascinating Lycian hilltop citadel or fortress, which apparently, and amazingly, was still lived in during the 19th century, by a local brigand. It was also a Roman town, and many Roman building etc remain, some awaiting funds to properly excavate or uncover.

Nearby, this lady was baking wonderful bread for the tourists.

It has a good weekly market, an "old town" full of shops (great fake designer goods!) and some superb restaurants and bars. No wonder people come back to visit Fethiye year after year.
