Monday 24th feels even hotter. After a slow start we travel to the nearby Lycian period World Heritage sites. Xanthos has a hill top location and was once the Lycian capital. There are some super Lycian tombs including one free standing tomb known as the Xanthian obelisk covered on all four sides with Lycian script. There is a Roman agora and theatre, the remains of the royal palace, Byzantine period buildings including a church, and a second agora. There are more impressive free-standing tombs and Lycian house style tombs cut into the rock s near the northern stretch of the city walls.
