Limyra pictures - near Finike in Lycia

Click here for my page with very many Turkish cities OR Other antique cities

Limyra is almost on the doorstep of Finike (which will get a gallery shortly), a few miles into the direction of Antalya from Demre, of St. Nicolas fame. It is an ancient Lycian town (mentioned by Harpagus in 545 BC), with an acropolis (which I did not visit this time around) on the Tocak Dağ mountain, and much of the town on a plain near the sea. The plain has grown a lot since Strabo wrote about it. I show a theatre, some buildings, amongst them the cenotaph (or what’s left of it, the decoration is now in the Antalya museum) of Gaius Caesar, adopted son of Augustus, who died here. And then there are lots of rock graves. I climbed to a group in the east, ignoring the occasional snake, thinking I would climb further towards the famous Heroon of Pericles. But I had to give in, later finding there was a much easier road (I just climbed the naked rocks) up there, but by then I was too exhausted. I later walked several miles to a very long Roman bridge, and found there were rock graves all along the road, some at street level.

I will add a few captions later.
