We went in late April and were literally the only ppl there (along w our driver who is from the area but had never been - he joined us on our explorations)... The tombs carved high into the cliffs are simply incredible and even more so that we could walk right up to them and explore. A friendly goatherder helped us find the path up tithe highest set (which you can see if you walk to the high theatre and then ten around and look back at the mountain). Definitely worth the drive!

Unlike other ancient cities and ruins we visited in our 5 months in southern Turkey, Pinara did not have the old building infrastrucute in place. However it did have something very special about it. The location, the views, the spiritually (thousands of very high hill side tombs), the layout and the remains an worth the visit. We spent over five hours and would have spent many more if we had not arrived so late. About a 45 minutes from central Fethiye. At the time we visited, off peak, here was no entry fee. Recommended.

Thank prholst
