Fethiye is located on the Mediterranean coast and is one of our touristic provinces. It was founded on top of the ancient city of Telrnessos. Fethiye, (which is near the Dalaman Airport) is easily reached by air, by sea and overland. It is a popular centre of water, history and nature.
Evidence has not been found to show us that Telrnessos (which was part of the Lycian League) dates any further back than the 4th century B.C. Some of the sarcophagi, along with the fortress of ancient Telrnessos (famous for its soothsayers) have been preserved. One of most important sarcophagi in the area belonged to Amynthas, and dates back to the 4th century B.C. This is sarcophagus which has two Ionian columns of Fethiye. There are no other remains of Telrnessos within Fethiye other than sarcophagi
