Welcome to Letoön


Letoön takes its name and importance from a large shrine to Leto, who, according to legend, was Zeus' lover and bore him Apollo and Artemis. Unimpressed, Zeus' wife Hera commanded that Leto spend eternity wandering from country to country. According to local folklore she passed much time in Lycia and became the national deity. The federation of Lycian cities then built this very impressive religious sanctuary to house her statue.
