Kalkan…With its tens of thousands of years of history.
Etrituminehi, Artymnessos, Kalamaki, Kalkan…. Respectively in Luwian, ancient Greek, modern Greek, and finally in Turkish. The first known visitors of these lands on the Teke Peninsula, whose history is estimated to date back to 3500 BC, are the Lukka people from Anatolia. Afterwards, the Hittites, Persians, Macedonians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and Seljuks fought for these beautiful lands, built lives, and finally, the first Ottoman banner was erected in Lycia in 1390 by Yıldırım Beyazıt. Even after many wars and earthquakes, our surroundings are still filled with the ruins of the beautiful cities of the magnificent Lycian civilization.
