In the vicinity of Kemer, there are two ancient cities, which are certainly worth a visit if you want to "touch" the antiquity. Phaselis, a city of ancient Lycia, was founded back in the 7th century BC. Once it was of great strategic importance: the city had three ports at his disposal. At different times, they were owned by different peoples: Persians, Greeks, Rhodians, Romans. In the 8th century, the harbor city was captured by the Arabs - and from that moment its new history begins.
