Leto, Latin Latona, in classical mythology, a Titan, the daughter of Coeus and Phoebe, LETO was the lover of Zeus, mother of the god Apollo and the goddess Artemis. When Leto was pregnant with the twins, she was pursued relentlessly by the goddess Hera as she was incredibly jealous because of their relationship.
Hera droves LETO from land to land, preventing her from finding a place to rest and give birth. Posiedon sees her distress and creates a peninsula for refuge. Poseidon wants LETO to get rid of Hera and reach the land as soon as possible, thus turns her into a seagull for a short time, and LETO goes to the peninsula. Here, under the shade of an olive tree, she gives birth to her daughter Artemis and her son Apollo.
Club & Hotel Letoonia is located on this legendary peninsula in Fethiye, where Leto gave birth to Artemis and Apollo.
Letoon, a Lycia city, namely “Land of Lights” in the Latin language, is placed near Fethiye Kumluova. According to the story told by Poet Ovidius, the city was built in the name of Leto, who became pregnant by Zeus. The oldest evidence of living reaches up to A.D 7th century.
Nowadays, there are three temples side by side. The one, which was placed in the north corner, is devoted to Leto, the one in the middle is devoted to Artemis, and the one in the southern corner is devoted to Apollo. There is a fountain in the southeast and a church on the eastern side of the temples.
There is Stoa and a theatre left from the Hellenistic Age, which partly osculates to nature. Letoon, which is accepted as the most spiritual city of Lycian Civilization and listed in UNESCO Global Culture Heritage List, is waiting for you to tell mysterious stories of ages.
