Tlos was one of the oldest and most powerful Lycian cities under reign of the Roman Empire. The huge site is widely spread over fertile fields, where fascinating monuments sit upon the hills looking over a picturesque valley. Interesting tales suggest that the ancient ruins date back to the 2nd century BC. Legends say that the tomb etched into a steep cliff side was said to be created by Greek mythology hero, Bellerophon, and his winged horse, Pegasus, as it was inaccessible by humans.
