Although  it’s a very small town in terms of land, Kas has a well-established history. It’s separated into two quarters by the shops aligned on the left hand side of the main avenue.

he shops, restaurant, and bars surrounding Cumhuriyet Square forms the town centre of Kas and is ever-dynamic. You can have wonderful time in Kas as it offers a broad range of activities and there are many stores available for shopping.
