The Lycian tomb, below the Knights' Castle, Kastellorizo, Greece at My Favourite Planet

The Lycian tomb is directly below the Knights' Castle (see close-up in next photo).
 

The Lycian rock-cut tomb (4th century BC), with its Doric facade carved out of the rockface directly below the Knights' Castle, is the only one in Greece.

It is a 5-10 minute walk along a paved coastal footpath from the mosque and Nicholas Savva Square, around the Kavos headland towards Mandraki. The path has excellent views Psoradia islet and the Turkish coast. The whitewashed wall of the path along the base of the castle rock is visible in the photo.

Along the way there are sets of steps, and the climb to the tomb itself is up steep, narrow stone steps with no safety rail. Like many of the paths on the island, it is not easily accessible for disabled people. It is difficult enough even for the fittest.

After passing under the Lycian tomb, the path continues to a concrete quay used for bathing.
