Fethiye Information & City Guide: Kayakoy, The Ghost Village.
If you follow the mountain road behind the Fethiye Citadel leading south, after 7 kilometers you will reach a fascinating settlement where Anatolian Greek people lived until 1922.
In the past, Kayakoy Village was called “Levissi”. Due to apopulation exchange mutually signed by two countries in 1922, the Turks in Thrace and the Anatolian Greeks were exchanged. However, the immigrants from Thrace could not adapt themselves to environmental conditions and abandoned the village in a short while.
