History of Fethiye

In history, Fethiye had always been a special and important place. However, the name was not always “Fethiye” as it is today. The oldest source about Fethiye is from when Lycians were ruling it, and the name of the town was “Telmessoss.” Telmessos means “People of the Land of Light.”

Later, Fethiye became independent from the Lycian Union for a certain period, and then it became under the rule of Persians around 6th century BC.  About a century later, in the 5th century BC, the city’s ruler changed from Persians to Alexander the Great. After Alexander the Great died, the town became under Egyptian King Ptalomus, but his reign did not last long. 

Not long after that, the town occupied by the Roman Empire, and the town’s name changed by them. Instead of Telmessoss, Roman people referred to the town as “Makri,” which means “far land.” As the Roman Empire divided into Eastern Rome and Western Rome, Makri stood within Eastern Rome’s boundaries, known as the Byzantine Empire. 

In 1282, the Mentheses took the town from Byzantine Empire. The town was later taken from the Mentheses by the Ottoman Empire in 1424. After the Republic of Turkey was found, the name of the district changed to “Fethiye.” There is a reason behind this preference about the name. The district was named after Mr. Fetih, one of the first pilots of Turkey. He became a martyr in 1913 as his plane was shot down as he was flying above Taberiya.  

Today, Fethiye is one of the most popular holiday destinations to visit in Turkey. You can both have fun to the fullest, and see the amazing historical landmarks in the city. There are lots of things to do in Fethiye and so much to explore.
