Myra is also where St. Nicholas had been lived and died, who also known as “Santa Claus”. Saint Nicholas was born in 300 AD in Patara then moved to Myra where he was a bishop.

Visit to Simena was first mentioned by Pilinius in 1C AD, it dates back to 4C BC where we learn from Lycian inscriptions and silver coins. Simena was part of the Lycian Union and was represented the city Aperlai. After Anatolia became part of the Roman Empire, Simena sustained its independence. When aproaching to the shore, a Roman bath comes first which was built in 79 BC. Lycian cities are famous for the rock tombs and sarcophaguses which you can see in Simena. The Lycians built a theater which has 300 persons capacity and a temple which was converted into a church later a mosque. Most of the sarcophaguses are in the water.

After the Demre-Myra, Kekova-Simena sightseeing tour, drive back to the hotel.
