Next to the Roman theater, you'll find ancient Fenecian grave. These graves are so special because they have been hacked out from the mountains. I can't imagine how they got their over 2000 years back. Unfortunaly all the graves have been robbed of their posessions.
There's an ancient Roman theater in Finike. It amazes me, that after so many years, this is still standing upright. Climb the stairs, and you'll see how big this actually is. You'll also get a great view from the top.
This place lies in a beutufull sea with islands. The city under the sea was destroyed by earthquake centuries ago. Here you can find Lykian tombs in a very good condition. Lykians were an ancient people in the time of Egyptians and Hetits.
Everything in this part is a pure satisfaction.
If you have an eye for detail, and you look closely at the site, you'll see all kinds of great things. For instance I saw this ancient tablet with latin inscription. There's so much to see here.
Favorite thing: You can walk up the theater, all the way to the top. Try counting how many steps there are. Thet'll keep you busy for some time. You'll get a great view when you're on the top.
