Lycian tombs, fragrant forests and a mystical and tranquil atmosphere are the ingredients of Pinara near Xanthos. Another one on your Turkey bucket list!
Hidden behind a small enchanted forest: Pinara!
It’s strange how one of the six principal cities from Lycia can be almost invisible, while in plain sight. Still, that is the case with Pinara (or Pınara in Turkish). Perched high up on a mountain, you won’t easily spot the city from a distance. And despite its size, the entrance is hidden behind the most enchanting little forest, making it all the more magical to explore this beautiful Lycian site. Words that come to mind when visiting Pinara are untouched, undiscovered, mystical and tranquil. Another off the beaten path destination often overlooked by people when traveling to Turkey, and visiting nearby Xanthos.
