Ancient Ruins Around Finike
Arykanda is located 26 km. from Turuncova on the Finike-Elmali highway. After leaving the highway it is necessary to walk about 1 km. It is not known exactly when Arykanda, which dominated the Akarcay valley and its surroundings, was established. Based on finds from explorations, it is thought to have existed in the 5th century B.C. Although largely destroyed by an earthquake in 240 A.D., it continued to survive until the 11th century A.D. Known as Akalanda in Byzantine times, it was built on terraces; many of the buildings are in a good state of preservation
