The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
Lycia & The Lycians:
Lycia was a region in Anatolia on the southern coast of modern day Turkey. The Lycians were an ancient people who inhabited a compact and mountainous territory situated on the Mediterranean coast between the bays of Antalya and Fethiye. Throughout ancient history, they have always held a distinctive place among the various races of Anatolia. Their time dates prior to the 7th century B.C and their legacy is still talked about today. They are especially known for their fierce love of freedom and independence. Envied by the Greeks, the Lycians developed a free government in the city-state with regard for the need of a larger political unity. The institutions of the democratic Lycian federation, which is the first democratic union known to history, enjoyed much peace and prosperity.
Antiphellos (Now known as Kas)
Founded by the Lycians, Kas, or its original name Antiphellos, was a member of the first democratic federation in the world called the Lycian League, established in 168 BC. Its importance during this time is confirmed by the existing presence of the richest Lycian necropolis in the area. The main street within Kas is marked by a monumental tomb dating back to the 4th century BC and is thought to be ascribed to a King. Another important masterpiece situated just south of the rock-cut Ionian tombs on the northern mountains is a Hellenistic amphitheater from the 1st century BC. Standing tall and facing south it stages the sea with a full view of the Greek Island of Kastellorizo.
Throughout its history, Kas was reigned by several rulers and due to its geography and location it grew into an active harbour busy with trade. The city gained much importance as a centre of episcopacy during the Roman and Byzantine periods but its primary significance, which transcended time, was its sea-faring commerce in exporting goods like sponges.
Situated in a little harbour with the Mediterranean Sea at one side and the Taurus Mountains on the other, Kas is the Lycian Coast's best kept secret.
The geographical make-up innately maintains its natural charm and easy going lifestyle. Small and serene Kas is perfect for an exclusive holiday getaway.
Some traditional trademarks of Turkish lifestyle stay true to its originality. The weekly market takes place every Friday with delicious and organic produce. Locals are known for their unmatched hospitality and kindness and Kas still is an active and bountiful fishing port.
Though small and timid, Kas thrives in antiquities and other various treasures. While Ionian tombs adorn the mountain facing the harbour, the authentic streets in the historical centre of Kas are graced with small shops, boutiques, restaurants and Lycian sarcophagi. A remarkable feature of Kas, which deserves a mention is its timeless amphitheatre that has absorbed numerous sunsets since the 1st century BC.
To make your holiday more exciting, Kas brings you a number of alternatives to choose from. It is a paradise for scuba diving: its underwater world, paragliding its exhilarating view, and mountain-biking/trekking its ancient Lycian paths from centuries ago.
Yachtsmen, fishers, sailors, divers, artists, romantics and children all enjoy the delights of the romantic harbour which is kept busy throughout the year.
During the day, one can arrange a short boat trip to a peaceful bay nearby or can walk to one of the pebble beaches in and around the area.
In the evenings, the heart of Kas is adorned with diverse restaurants which use fresh produce and foods ready to cook delicious meals.
At night jazz bars, cafes and venues fill the small streets which are the main arteries that liven up the nightlife of Kas.
