Patara

Patara
Patara, once the main port of Lycia and famous for the birthplace of Apollo and St. Nicholas ( Bishop of Myra / Santa Claus ), although today is better known for its vast white sandy beach and summertime turtle nesting site.

Transportation to Patara

Patara is served by the village of Gelemis 3km away inland where you will find pansiyons, bars and restaurants. Dolmus run from Fethiye around 15 times a day. The entrance to the site is 2km from the village and marked by a 1st century AD triple arched Roman gateway almost entirely intact.

Facilities

The site is not yet fully excavated and there are few clear paths and no facilities or shade.

Ancient Ruins

Apollo’s head was discovered here and gives to the speculation this was the site of the temple of Apollo. There is a bath complex, an attractive 2nd century temple, and other baths built by Emperor Vespasian (69-79 AD). A theatre sits southwest of these baths and Hadrian’s Granary is on the far side of the port looking across the dunes.

Entrance Fee

The entrance fee to the Patara Ancient Site is 5 Turkish Lira. 

Patara Beach

The Patara beach is listed as one of the longest continual strands in the Mediterranean. Beach dolmus can be flagged down to take you there or use the tractor-drawn transport offered by the hotels.
