Fethiye, which was known as Telmessos in the ancient times, was the most important city situated on Lycia's western border with Caria. It is believed that the city's name comes from Apollon's son Telmessos.
The city joined the Ottoman Empire in 1924. The name changed many times over the years and was eventually named Fethiye after Mr Fethi in 1914, one of the first martyrs of the Turkish Air Force, crashed his plane there and died.
In the south part of the town you will see many famous tombs and graves from the Antique Era. One of the most famous stone tombs is the tomb of King Amyntas. The ruins belonging to a theatre, which have been discovered recently during the excavation carried out by the museum, are in the city centre.

Gemiler (St Nicholas) Island
Modern archaeologists believe that the island may be the location of St. Nicholas' original tomb. The traditional Turkish name for the island is Gemiler Adası, meaning "Island of Boats", which may be a reference to St. Nicholas's role as the patron saint of sailors; the island was also referred to as St. Nicholas Island by seafarers in the medieval period. Archaeologists believe he was interred in the rock-hewn church following his death in 326. His relics remained there until the 650s, when the island was abandoned as it was threatened by an Arab fleet.
