It is one of many historical Roman places in Turkey. Consists of amphi theatre and burial sites . Amphi theatre is fairly in good condition. One can visit it if one has time.

The tombs cut in the cliff faces overlooking the amphitheater are a sight to behold. Having seen many ancient sites, I was surprised at how much Myra captured so much in such a small area. If you are in the area, don't miss this.

Of ancient Myra, little remains now but the theatre and the rock-cut tombs, but these are exceptional. The theatre is of Roman type, very well-preserved, and with a fantastic collection of theatre mask friezes, although not in situ. The later Church has wonderful frescoes.
