The historic city of Limira extends on the southern edge of Mount Tochak and includes an acropolis containing buildings from the early period, as well as an area within the walls of the Roman and Byzantine periods on the plain to the south of it, which is separated by a road.

Lycian inscriptions refer to Limira as “Zemuri”, indicating that the city was settled at least as early as the 5th century BC. A particularly active period of the city’s existence was during the reign of the Lycian king Pericles in the first half of the 4th century BC, when Limira became the capital of Lycia.

Limira is one of the most famous cities in the Lycian region due to the large number of rock tombs. There are over four hundred rock tombs in the city, many of which are known by their names and inscriptions in the Lycian language.
