Carved into the hills above Fethiye, there's a second "city"... of tombs. Created by the Lycian civilization, there are loads of these scattered around this area of Turkey, but those in Fethiye are particularly famous - and reasonably well-preserved - examples. We didn't pay to go right up to them, as you can't actually go inside and there's a pretty good view from the road. Some of them are very grand, with pillars carved into the rock face; presumably to house the bodies of the more important members of society, compared to those which are just little square windows.
