Fethiye Information & City Guide: Karagozler
Karagözler forms part of Fethiye’s old town (Paspatur) and is the area’s most prestigious and arguably the most authentic district. Karagözler is made up of the old Karagözler with its beautiful marina views and second Karagözler, which developed later on with more modern properties lining up toward the old Fethiye shipyard.
This area is particularly sought after due to its perfect location relative to the main marina, old town, the fish market and Fethiye Town centre. Paspatur is a short level walk away and is the most colourful shopping and entertainment centre of Fethiye town. There are seven entrances, two of which are on the main streets. It displays an extraordinary panorama for those camera-addicts with its restaurants, old buildings under protection, streets, bath, mosque, cafeterias on the sidewalks and bars. Paspatur means “water channel-trench”, named after the irrigation system built for the town in the past. A popular belief of Paspatur is that “those who take a drink of Paspatur, will come to Fethiye again….” At the Paspatur Market shops are open very late, selling all kinds of goods ranging from traditional handcrafts to souvenirs.
