The ancient city of Patara lies between Fethiye and Kalkan and is known as the birthplace of the Greek sun god Apollo. Over time, the old port in Patara, which once thrived as the capital of the Lycian League, was covered in sand.
The ruins are scattered towards the surrounding hills and consist mostly of holy places and a theater. The beautiful beaches adorn the shores of this old port city. Visitors who are looking for crystal clear blue sea and brilliant sun are welcome here.
