XANTHOS
Tombs in the forest

Xanthos, Turkey


Xanthos, Turkey


Tombs at Xanthos, where facades followed the pattern of house facades rather the more imporessive temple facade, rests in a forest over the ancient town. There is another pillar tomb here. This area is a nice conclusion on the walk around Xanthos, taking little extra time to cover.
