DİKMEN HILL

A hill named Dikmen rises to 1200m; it is 1km southwest of Alakilise and 750m southeast of Zeytin. The Lycian Way follows a well-preserved old road from Alakilise to the Zeytin valley and a branch climbs the hill.

On the west and south sides of the hill are ruins of an old village. On the hilltop is a badly-damaged early Byzantine triconchos three-naved church made of fine large ashlar blocks, with a sacristy attached on the south side. The area is overgrown with maquis and only the south apse is visible. Later, a small church with single apse and narthex was built inside the church.
