Kadyanda - TurkeyThe ruined hill-top ancient city of Kadyanda or Cadianda (Turkish: Kadianda) is situated at about 25 km north-east of Fethiye near the village of Üzümlü. The archaeological site, whose monuments and inscriptions date back to the 5th century BC, has only recently been opened to tourism. Kadyanda or Kadawanti in Lycian was not an important city and is mentioned only once in the ancient manuscripts. Still, Kadyanda is certainly worth visiting, as the site is unspoiled with its city walls, stadium, temple, agora, Hellenistic - Greek theater, and Roman baths. All these remains are located in a magnificent setting amidst a pinewood forest with fantastic views over the Xanthos Valley and Fethiye Plain.

A visit to Kadyanda can be completed within a 45-minute walk through a superb mountain scenery and is also easily combined with a visit to Kayaköy
