Kemer Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 10 photos

 
 

About 2 hours by car from Kemer is the histoical site of Arykanda. A lesser known historical site along the Lycian Way. Located about 26 km. from Turuncova on the Finike-Elmali highway. After leaving the highway it is necessary to walk about 1 km. Arycanda (Arykanda) is a unique Lycian city, built upon five large terraces ascending a mountain slope, and was known for having the most pleasure and entertainment-loving (and debt-ridden) citizens. The city overlooks a magnificent valley and its view makes it one of the most spectacular sites in Lycia.
