Turkey Travel Guide

Letoon

LETOON   you turn west one kilometer beyond the road from Kinik to  Fethiye  and continue 5 kilometers (3 miles).The site was first discovered in 1841 by a British navy officer, but the official and legal excavations have started in 1962. Today, due to the rising water level, archaeological digs have been suspended. The history of Letoon is closely linked with that of  Xanthos. It is known to have been one of the most important religious centers of the Lycian  region in Anatolia , Turkey. The remains unearthed indicate they belong to the period between the 7th century BC and the 6th century AD.

The site  is on the UNESCO World   Heritage sites list since 1988.

This site, which was the capital of Lycia, illustrates the blending of Lycian traditions and Hellenic influence, especially in its funerary art. The epigraphic inscriptions are crucial for our understanding of the history of the Lycian people and their Indo-European language.

Xanthos  was the name of a city in ancient Lycia, the site of present day Kınık, Antalya Province, Turkey, and of the river on which the city is situated. In early sources, "Xanthos" is used synonymously for Lycia as a whole
