The city of Kalkan is not a very popular resort in Turkey, but despite this, it can delight lovers of secluded relaxation, as well as hunters of antiquities. After all, it is here that ancient buildings have survived to this day. And the surroundings of the town will surprise even the most experienced travelers with their picturesque nature and abundance of historical sites.
Not far from Kalkan is the ancient city of Pinara (or Pinale), which was founded in the 5th century BC. It developed as the inhabitants of Xanthos settled these lands, who were forced to leave their hometown due to its overpopulation.
From the time of the conquest of Pinara by Alexander the Great to our time, ancient tombs have survived. Also today you can see a theater dating back to the 2nd century BC and miraculously preserved in its original form. The object is surrounded by centuries-old pines, olive groves, picturesque cliffs. This wonderful place can be visited by following the main highway from Kalkan towards Fethiye.
Another ancient settlement in the vicinity of Kalkan is called Xanthus. Once it was the capital of the Lycian state, famous for its outstanding history, which today literally impregnates every stone here. Among the buildings that have survived to this day are the ancient amphitheater, temple ruins, tombs. Of the recently found buildings, a Roman-Byzantine street can be noted.
In the 5th century BC, the city was besieged by the Persians. And later, already in the 1st century BC, after the attack of Brutus, only 150 inhabitants remained in the city.
Many of the finds discovered by British explorer Charles Fellowes, who visited Xanthos in the 19th century, are now preserved in the British Museum. Although the settlement is believed to have been founded in the 8th century BC, some archaeological evidence suggests that the dawn of the settlement dates back to the Bronze Age or the first centuries of the Iron Age.
When making a trip to Xanthos, you can also combine it with visiting Letuna and Patara, which are beautiful areas.
Patara is one of the most beautiful beaches in the vicinity of Kalkan. This is a picturesque sandy line, the length of which is considered a record on the entire Mediterranean coast. Families with small children love to visit this place. Indeed, in the coastal zone there is a spacious area of ​​shallow water, which will be comfortable for babies to swim.
Near the beach there is a ruins complex of the same name. According to historical data, it was Patara that was the birthplace of St. Nicholas, as well as the largest trading port of the Lycian state.
