Myra (with Necropolis) It is an ancient Lycian city located in Kale (Demre) district of Antalya Province. There is no written source about Myra before Myra became a member of the Lycian alliance (168 – 43 BC); Myra, one of the six important cities of the Lycian League with three voting rights, took its name from the Myros Stream (Demre Stream). The story of Myra, which was once the capital of the Lycian civilization, starts with tomb reliefs and ends at the sea with Andriake Harbor. This is also known as the place where the Goddess Kybele is Artemis. Some of the ruins of the city, which belongs to the Lycian and Roman periods, are under alluvial deposits. The rock tombs look like a big house from afar. There are still remains to be discovered in Myra, which had its most magnificent period in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. Myra is the city where St. Nicholas was the bishop in the 4th century AD. He is an important religious figure for Eastern Orthodox Christians and Roman Catholics around the world. You can explore the Church of St. Nicholas, which is on the UNESCO Tentative List to be a world heritage site. Especially the magnificent tombs carved into the rocks, the theater with a capacity of around 6500, the temple, the agora, the ancient port structures and the Church of St. Nicholas are among the places to be visited.source /myra- ancient-city-antalya.
