The name changed many times over the years and was eventually named Fethiye in memoriam of Fethi Bey in 1914, one of the first martyrs of the Turkish Air Force, crashed his plane and died there when he was on duty. In the south part of the town you will see many famous tombs and graves from the Antique Era and one of the most famous and most beautiful stone tombs is the tomb of King Amyntas.
