was erected at an altitude of 950-1000 meters in the
fifth century B.C. Cadianda is reached by a long and
steep climb where there are many rock tombs and
inscriptions in the Lycian and Greek languages. The
most significant of these is the "Salas Monument"

protected. Besides the stadium which is 9 kms. wide

city was devastated by the diggings of looters and is
a sorry state.
