Ancient City of Kayaköy

Formerly known as Levissi, Kayaköy, is a settlement which was established during the Lycian period and existed as a wealthy town until the early 20th century. Kayaköy was the largest social and commercial centre of the region with its churches, chemists, hospital, schools and post office. Kayaköy, was inhabited by around 25,000 people until 1922. After an agreement between Turkish and Greek governments, a population exchange took place between the Greeks living in Kayaköy and the Turkish population living in Western Thrace.

The lower floors of the houses in Kayaköy were used as a pantry. The houses were around 50 m 2 in size, and the most distinctive feature was the unobstructed view. The houses in Kayaköy which had two floors housed a cistern on the lower floor where rainwater accumulated. There were approximately 2000 houses, a number of chapels, two churches, schools and customs buildings were built from a natural stone with walls 60 cm thick.

There were two types of settlements at Kayaköy. The Greeks lived on the slope and the Turks lived on the flat terrain. For centuries the two communities coexist together in peace, prosperity and wealth.

Nowadays, we may not be accustomed to, but we miss the relative calm, birds singing and the lush vegetation which defined Kayaköy.

According to Greek myths, the name of the city comes from Tloos, one of the four sons of Tremilus and Praksidke. The city name of Tlos is derived from Tlawa, a Lycian expression. Tlawa, on the other hand, is identical to the “Dawala Land” often mentioned in the Hittite texts. The Hittites settlement in Tlos, which is emphasized in the written documents, has also been proved today with archaeological finds. However, both the archaeological data and the findings in the Tlos territory show that the history of the first people in this region dates back to the periods even before the Hittites.


Kaunos was a city of ancient Caria and in Anatolia, a few km west of the modern town of Dalyan, Muğla Province, Turkey. The Calbys river (now known as the Dalyan river) was the border between Caria and Lycia. Initially Kaunos was a separate state; then it became a part of Caria and later still of Lycia. Kaunos was an important sea port, the history of which is supposed to date back till the 10th century BC. Because of the formation of İztuzu Beach and the silting of the former Bay of Dalyan (from approx. 200 BC onwards), Kaunos is now located about 8 km from the coast.[2] The city had two ports, the southern port at the southeast of Küçük Kale and the inner port at its northwest (the present Sülüklü Göl, Lake of the Leeches). Kaunos Ancient City is on the UESCO Tentative list of World Heritage.

The two sites strikingly illustrate the continuity and unique combination of the Anatolian, Greek, Roman, and Byzantine civilizations. It is also in Xanthos-
Letoon that the most important texts in Lycian language were found. The inscriptions engraved in rock or on huge stone pillars on the site are crucial for a better understanding of the history of the Lycian people and their Indo-European language.
