Turkey Travel Guide

Myra ( Demre )

  

Myra is an ancient town in Lycia, where the small town of Kale (Demre) is situated today in present day Antalya Province of Turkey. It was located on the river Myros (Demre Çay), in the fertile alluvial plain between Alaca Dağ, the Massikytos range and the Aegean Sea.

Myra was important enough to have its own bishops, among whom Saint Nicholas (aka Santa Claus), born in nearby Patara, was the most famous. At the time St. Nicholas was bishop, Myra was also made the capital of the Roman province of Lycia. Subsequent rulers treated Myra well and the city continued to prosper, but in the 7th century decline set in as a result of Arab raids and the silting of the harbor. As a results of further misfortunes caused by more assaults of the Arabs, earthquakes that hit the region, and the flooding of the Myrros stream, the city was largely abandoned.
