    Kaya Village

    Kaya village, or ghost town is a place that is abandoned after great Greek-Turkish migrations. Before, Greek people used to live there, and after the wars with Turkey, they went back to Greece, and Turks from Greece came back to Turkey. But instead of settling in Kayaköy that was abandoned by Greeks, they settled in the Egean area of Turkey as the climate was more suitable to what they got used to back in Greece. thus the Kaya village remained abandoned definitely and with years it was ruined. Nowadays there are pleanty of ruined houses and churches, but it´s not a dead place, since there are various feasts, rpograms and belly dances ever day, as well as horse riding and trekking. There is a wonderful trail down to Fethiye and Ölüdeniz as well, from Kayaköy. It can also be reached by dolmus bus from Hisarönü.

    Abandoned city when Greek people left after world war. The Turkish people who came here from Greece do not prefer to live here and left this village to its own faith.If you visit this place you can see ruin of a village, the most durable place is village's main church.

    This place is also popular for horse riding, you can take dolmus to this place 7-22 in summer months from Fethiye.
