Located 8 kilometers from the town of Fethiye, historical background, dating back 3000 BC In ancient times, known as''''Karmylassos Yeri'ndeki Kayakoy ruins preserved for future generations of structures for the transport study was initiated Muğla Chamber of Architects.
President of the Chamber of Architects of Mugla Ertugrul Aladdin, 1922, the exchange is being sent to Greece after the Greek Cypriots living in the village at the Turks in Greece are located in this region, he said.

Placed in the village that settled on the plain, leaving the Turkish village of Aladdin,''historic homes here for many years, neglected and was unconcerned. From the Greeks back at the stone houses, fountains, cisterns, shops, a chapel and the remains of the church's two large,''he said.
Kayaköy last 20 years, visited by local and foreign tourists in particular, closely followed by public opinion which stated that a district Aladdin,''back at better things to do every day is getting worse. From here, scientists, researchers, artists, doing work, and these studies are published. However, for some reason he did not return to its service Kayaköy. Period of time has passed, the walls torn down and the roof collapsing. Growing fig tree structures makes it invisible. Here, new studies must be done,''he said.

Back at the axle of life'''

A new understanding of tourism in that region KAYAKÖY losing revenue, and the understanding of the cultural tourism, we lose the future. This fact must be lived hundreds of years that people never forget the wars may be at any moment.

Suggesting that a prisoner would be no case of wild tourism Kayaköy Aladdin, said:

Kayaköy''then no property, there is no compelling as well. Because then it becomes an ordinary settlement, and for people to visit cezbetmediği not, and when left to its own devices as a residential area which is not in the remains. Even at this time do not call back at the wild should be tourism destination for cultural tourism is not an appropriate service. Here you become wild slowly moving towards the type of service. For this reason, back at the gradually reduced interest. This is a very bad thing.''

Letoon information about the ancient city, near Fethiye

The Letoon, sometimes Latinized as Letoum, was a sanctuary of Leto near the ancient city Xanthos that was one of the most important religious centres of the Lycian region in Anatolia. The site is located between the towns of Kaş and Fethiye in Antalya province of Turkey, approximately four km south of Xanthos along the Xanthos River.
Archaeological finds at the site, which was never a fully occupied settlement, but remained essentially a religious centre, date back to the late sixth century BCE, before the Greek cultural hegemony in Lycia, which began in the early fourth century. In earlier times, the site was probably already sacred to the cult of an earlier mother goddess— she is Eni Mahanahi in Lycia— which was superseded by the worship of Leto, joined by her twin offspring.
The "Lycian" Apollo, a Roman pastiche in a Praxitelean manner
In Greek mythology, a claim for an early cult of Apollo in the valley of the Xanthus, unsupported by history or archaeology, was provided by two myths, each connected to an eponymous "Lycus". One sprang from the autochthonous Telchines of Rhodes and would have colonized the region at the time of Deucalion's flood; the other Lycus was an Athenian brother of Aegeus driven from Athens, a seer who introduced the cult of Lycaean Apollo, which a folk etymology connected with Lycia and therefore made him its Athenian colonizer: see Lycus.

The foundations of the Hellenistic temple dedicated to Leto, and her children, Artemis and Apollo, have been excavated under the direction of H. Metzger from 1962.Archæologists have excavated much of the ruins; discoveries include the Letoon trilingual, bearing inscriptions in Greek, Lycian and Aramaic, which has provided crucial keys in the deciphering of the Lycian language; it is conserved in the Fethiye Museum.

The sacrosanctity of the site is the purport of an anecdote related by Appian concerning Mithridates, who was planning to cut down the trees in the sacred grove for his own purposes in his siege of the Lycian coastal city of Patara, but was warned against the sacrilegious action in a nightmare. The site remained active through the Roman period. The site was Christianised by the construction of an early church, which reused cut stone from the sanctuary, but was abandoned from the seventh century CE.
