Patara  is important   as  an  archeological , historical  site  and    because of Caretta  -Caretta  Turtles.(The Caretta Caretta spawns always in the same beach where it was born and for this reason it is important to keep the conditions for the nests survival in order to avoid the specimen extinction. The nesting period is from June to August, months in which the females reach the beach to spawn. )
