Letoon Turkey

Letoon on the Fethiye-Kas highway was originally founded in the name of Leto, mother of the Olympic deities Apollo and Artemis. The ancient city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As the city of this proud mother Leto, Letoon is the religious center of Lycia. There are three major temples where visitors can see mosaic depictions of famous scenes from mythology. The city was home to many other ancient works of art and was abandoned in the 7th century AD.
