Myra (Demre), Antalya, Turkey Lycian tombs with square columns carved into limestone cliffs during the fourth century B.C. look like houses bunched together. They rest on the cliff above a well-preserved Roman theater with a double-vaulted corridor. However, the ancient city is most famous for its restored 9th–11th-century church dedicated to a local-boy-made-good: St. Nicholas, better known as Santa Claus.
