You join the Lycian Way near the ridge of a valley, topped off by the Roman engineering marvel of Delikkemer, a reverse siphon system, part of the aqueduct that brought water to Patara, the metropolis of Lycia. The walk follows the aqueduct system as it contours around the hillside before it gets lost in the forest.
Picking up the forest road later, you start to get views of the fertile Xanthos valley and also the dunes and remains of Patara, before picking up the aqueduct again as you descend to the magnificent site of Patara itself.
On arrival at the site we recommend that you take the time to make a good visit of the remains before heading towards the beach, where there is beer available for sunset!
