Letoon is located 4 km from Xanthos. It was the religious center of Lycia. There are temples dedicated to Leto, Apollo and Artemisia in Letoon. Xanthosians were people that were committed to their freedom with passion. Historian Herodotus has cited these characteristics in his work....More

Probably one of the most important cities in Lycia next to Xanthos. Make sure you take your swim suit along as the beach, one of the better ones in Turkey is not far.

It’s not a bad ancient city but there’s much better cities to visit in the area...Tlos being the best closest to Fethiye. Was it worth my time, yes but I only spent about 20 minutes there and then moved on to another city.

We were the only people there, and this was a fun stop on our tour of the coast. Not exactly a destination point in itself for the average tourist, but well worth it if you are close. The Temple of Leto is pretty impressive and...More
