Phaselis, hidden ancient city..

Phaselis is an ancient Lycian city in the province of Antalya in Turkey. It is located between the Bey Mountains and the forests of Olympos National Park.

Although the borders of Lycia was altered many times in the course of history, Phaselis is known as 'the city at the eastern border' of the area next to Phamphylia. Phaselis is an ancient city where only surface excavation has taken place. This is why it is still among pine trees and under vegetation. The combination of ancient remains with a forest surrounded by sea on three sides makes it a beautiful national park.
