Lycian Tombs - Fethiye, Turkey

Staying with buildings carved of solid rock, the ancient Lycian tombs, with their ornate facades, look like temples. However, they were created for the Lycian dead to be magically wafted away by angels from their lofty perch on the hillside. Some date back to the 4th century, where Romanesque columns can be seen. However, older tombs are merely rather plain holes dug into the rock. While the exteriors might be ornate, the chambers inside are plain with just a monolith to display the body.
