HISTORY OF GOCEK

yacht rentals turkey

Gocek is one of the ancient Lycian settlements found between those of Fethiye and Caunos. Regrettably there are only a few ruins remaining from ancient Kalimche. The main settlement area is unknown; therefore no further excavations have been made to search further. Gocek is still keeping its secrets, as historical writers have not disclosed the region’s assets and history in detail. Examples of rock tombs, monuments and baths can be found in the bays and along the Fethiye highway. There are also some ruins on the Tersane islands belonging to both ancient and recent history. One can well imagine the Daidalos and Ikarus legends to be true for Gocek if its geographical situation is examined. The locations of the ancient cities of Krya, Lisai and Lydai can be found on the Kapidag peninsula that can be reached by boat. Boat trips to these places operate regularly and although the region has not been excavated fully, several objects have recently been recovered from these settlements.
