Myra, located in Demre district and one of the biggest cities of Lycian Union; is famous for magnificent rock tombs, theater from Roman period and Church of St. Nicholas.

Its history extending the date at least 5th century B.C., continued developing in the 2nd century A.D. In the 4th century A.D., St. Nicholas also known as Santa Claus was patriarch in Myra, and was put in a sarcophagus in a church named after him after he died. Myra became the center of Lycia region during Theodosius II period. Population of the city was decreased for reasons such as increase of the Arab invasion since the middle of the 7th century, earthquake, flood, and it wrapped into a village identity in the 12th century.
