Lycian Ghost Town



On our last day in Lycia, we headed 8km over the mountains south of Fethiye, stepping out at the edge of Kayaköy. Up until the massive population exchange of the early 1920s, when millions were kicked across the Aegean, Greek-speaking Christians called it home. Today, its several hundred crumbling homes still stretch up the mountainside, strung together by steep, narrow pathways and highlighted by a couple hollowed-out churches.
