Cadianda, whose Lycian name is Cadavanti, is located near the Üzümlü Town, 12 miles to Fethiye. This historical city dating back to the 5th century B.C was a very colourful and rich settlement during the Roman Empire.
On the northern entrance, surrounded by the city walls built with irregular stones, at an altitude of 1968 feet, there are four Lycian tombs. Three of them, probably built in the 4th century, are housetombs and are in ruins. the fourth is carved out of a single rock; on its south face there is a figure of a man on horse back attacking his opponent with a spear and a shield. The first buildings seen on the northern entrance to the acropolis are remains of a supposedly Doric temple and ruins of a public bath cut out of stone which was built by the order of Vespasianus, the Roman Emperor.
There is a small theater on the west side, built on the slope, with most of the seats intact, but the stage is in complete ruins.
In the center of the town there is a large plain, approximately 30 feet long which is believed to be the city stadium.
