From the moment we looked up and saw the magnificent Lycian rock tombs that keep watch over Fethiye and it's citizens barely a day went by without reminding ourselves that this was a must see - sooner rather than later. So with the sun shining and the temperature just right for climbing we set off. Up the meandering streets we strolled taking in the days rays and being reminded of exactly why we had moved to this very special part of the world. The way, as they say , 'is paved in gold' and in Fethiye the 'gold' truly is the history. I never realised just how much history there is hidden in this ancient town. Yes, we have the Telmessos Ancient Theatre, The castle of the Knights of St John and of course the famous rock tombs as can be seen from down below. But if your wandering around town and you come across Sokak 111 (111 street), follow it, because it takes you winding up behind some pretty hidden and impressive history not mentioned in any tourist guide book I've read. As you can see by my pictures, hidden amongst and among the old houses are parks and plots littered with ruins. Some are being used as chicken coups, others rubbish dumps and still others are being preserved as modern day roundabouts - open you eyes and see, not just look. The pile of rubble you stumble across is more likely to be the foundations of something that was, in it's time, much bigger.
