About
Much of the city of Patara remains buried in sand, which has helped to preserve many of the ruins. Of particular interest are the Amphitheatre, Necropolis and the monumental gate or Arch of Triumph.

This is one of the very impressive places in this area to walk around. And the lighthouse is the most favorite place for me as I mentioned in title. It's located a bit hidden place, and you can have your own time to spend.
