Many of the whitewashed houses in Kaş are surrounded with pink bougainvillea flowers that immediately make you notice the influence of Greek architecture in some of the older properties, typically the wooden shutters,narrow streets and large terraces for enjoying the mid-day sun. Antiphellos Antiphellos was a small settlement and the port for Phellos,the much larger Lycian town further north in the hills.Its small Hellenistic theater,500m west of the main square,could seat 4000 spectators and is in very good condition.
The Roman-era road on the east of the main square to reach the King’s Tomb,a superb example of a 4th century BC Lycian sarcophagus.It’s mounted on a high base and has two lion heads on the lid. Demre is a town and its surrounding district in on the western Mediterranean coast of Turkey, named after the river Demre.Demre is the Lycian town of Myra,the home of Saint Nicholas of Myra,the historical man later developed into the figure of Santa Claus.
Myra Ancient City Myra was a leading city of the Lycian Union and surpassed Xanthos in early Byzantine times to become the capital city of Lycia.Its remains are situated about 1.5 kilometers north of Demre.The city is well known for its amphitheatre (the largest in Lycia)and the plethora of rock-cut tombs carved in the cliff above the theatre.Myra once had a great temple of the goddess Artemis Eleuthera (a distinctive form of Cybele,the ancient mother goddess of Anatolia),said to be Lycia’s largest and most splendid building.It was built on large grounds with beautiful gardens and had an inner court defined by columns,an altar and a statue of the goddess.Myra’s Greco-Roman theatre is the largest theatre in Lycia and one of the main attractions of Myra,still in good shape.The famous rock-tombs of Myra are in two main groups, one above the theater and the other in a place called the river necropolis on the east side.
St.Nicholas Church The earliest church of St. Nicholas was built in the 6th century AD,supposedly over St. Nicholas’ tomb.It was further rebuilt in 1042 under the patronage of Constantine X and a monastery was added at that time or shortly after.The church’s floor is of beautiful opus sectile and cosmati,types of luxury marble mosaic floor tilings,and there are some remains of wall paintings.The Church was a popular pilgrimage center attracting pilgrims from home and abroad in all periods, even after the remains of St.Nicholas were stolen in 1087 AD.St.Nicholas was known for his charitable nature and humility.Several legends about him have been based on his kind and giving nature and have led to the development of Santa Claus.
