Fethiye was flattened in the same earthquake that destroyed Marmaris, and the modern post-quake town is mostly composed of reinforced concrete buildings of little charm. Here and there one sees older dwellings that survived the earthquake- little gems tucked into the concrete town. Nonetheless the town is a convivial place and one that most people come to like. In the cliff behind the town are several Lycian rock tombs that are prominent when approaching remains of ancient Telmessus, which was the principal port of Lycia. The largest of the tombs is the Tomb of Amyntas, an imposing tomb with Ionic columns, dating from the 4th century BC. Just west of the tombs are the ruins of a medieval fort, also prominent from seaward.
