Myra - classical site in Turkey

Bütün Türkiye resimleri için buraya basınız
Click here for my page with very many Turkish cities OR Other antique cities

From the Enc. Brit.: near modern Kale (Demre) one of the most important towns of ancient Lycia, located near the mouth of the Andriacus River on the Mediterranean Sea in southwest Turkey. Its early history is unknown. St. Paul is known to have visited the city, and in the 4th century St. Nicholas was its bishop. The Eastern Roman emperor Theodosius II made Myra the capital of Byzantine Lycia until the city fell to the caliph Hārūn ar-Rashīd in AD 808. The western scarp of its acropolis, dating from the 5th to the 3rd century BC, was sculptured into a large number of rock-cut sepulchres, imitating wooden houses and shrines, with pillared facades and reliefs. At the foot of the acropolis are the remains of a magnificent theatre, one of the largest and finest in Anatolia.

I here show pictures of the theatre and rock graves from several visits. NOTE: the first picture is a link to a separate gallery. There is another gallery for the church of Saint Nicolas of Sinterklaas or Santa Claus fame.

There is an informative site about Myra and Andriake, but it is in Turkish.
