The archaeological site of Tlos are located on a rocky outcrop at 500m of altitude, about 20km from the coast and 35km southeast of Fethiye. Tlos most likely dates back to the 2nd millennium BC, although little is known about its history. There is a huge and impressive Roman amphitheatre with 34 rows of seats, a few hundred metres away from the ticket counter. The amphitheatre is actually closed for visitors, perhaps due to safety reasons. Another significant structure is the fortress, which is located on a hill and overlooks the entire site. At its food there are several Lycian tombs and further down a stadium. In addition there are the ruins of an agora and of several Roman era buildings.
