The lions tomb is in our "to do" list. After a good meal while we are walking and shopping we saw the tomb suddenly at the end of the street. It was so close...the tomb was impressive. By the way, there was a towel store...More

You have to travel to Phellos (20 mins outside kas) and take a great walk along a part of the lycian way. Once there there are lots of ruins and ancient engineering feats to admire, the lions toumb being just one of them.

Traveling this region, you get to se a lot of tombs, or rather sarcophaguses - all made in the same style, so you are never in doubt that it is a Lycian sarcophagus. This one is a beauty, though. Very dominant, beautifully carved, and with...More

This tomb and the views associated with it are worth the walk up the hill behind Kas along the coast. The tomb is in OK condition considering it is right on the road/

Cool monument right in the center of kas, really tough to miss it. If it wasn’t in the center of the city I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to see it. Interesting nonetheless.

It's hard to believe that this ancient tomb is as old as it is. Located at the top of the pretty street Uzuncarsi (the Slippery Slope, as the British ex-pats appear to call it) it attracts a fair bit of attention and there are often...More

This is quite a good Lycian tomb to view as it is in the centre of the town of Kas and easy to access. The tomb is large and has Lycian writing on it. Worth a visit.

This is over 2000 years old. And still in good condition. You can sit down on the ledges at the bottom of the tomb to escape the hot sun. Impressive!

you can see ancient tombs everywhere (even in some houses gardens). They make you feel the sanctity and oldness of the city

Built approx 500 BC and is situated in the middle of Kas. One of the largest free standing tombs in the area. Not to be missed
