Photographer's Note

Kekova-Simena is a very popular Lycian site, situated upon one of the most attractive spots of the Turkish coast.

The name "Kekova" is Turkish for "plain of thyme" and describes the area of and around the ancient Lycian sunken city of Simena. A charming mix of ancient, medieval and modern history makes Kekova-Simena interesting as well as beautiful.

In ancient times Simena was a small fishing village, later a Crusaders’ outpost of the Knights of St. John and now the sleepy fishing village of Kale.
